With a gift of approximately $300,000, Western alumni Bud and Joanne Taylor have endowed the Bud and Joanne Taylor Clinical Education Nursing Awards Fund at Foundation Western.

This newly established endowment will support, in perpetuity, full-time undergraduate and graduate nursing students participating in clinical placements in remote areas.

“We firmly believe that all health professionals need to be exposed to career-related learning outside of the University to be better prepared for the real-world practical side of their career,” says Bud.

“And there is a double benefit when this experience can be gained while providing service to remote areas.”

Both Bud and Joanne have an affinity for Western, as they and two of their three children went to the University. Joanne received her diploma in public health nursing in 1958 and Bud has since participated in the Management Training Course offered through Ivey’s Executive Development program.

“Although we both came from very humble beginnings, we’ve been able to achieve considerable financial success and felt that it would be selfish, if not immoral, to not share it in some significant way,” says Bud.
