We want to share the stories of some of our friends and alumni, who tell why they decided to support the UF College of Pharmacy.
Private funding fortifies the college allowing us to fulfill our mission regardless of government funding and to direct resources where they will have the greatest impact. As you read our donor spotlights, you will see how each individual has created a legacy in a unique way.
If you are interested in establishing a planned gift to the college, please contact Elizabeth Zipper at firstname.lastname@example.org or 352-273-6605. With a planned giving strategy, you can put your assets to work in the College of Pharmacy as you choose – while you and the college share in the benefits.
John "Dolph" Cone
Dolph Cone-Sandy Prickett Scholarship
Class of '58
Each November, the UF Alumni Association holds a Grand Guard reunion to celebrate the 50th anniversary of graduation from the University of Florida. UF pharmacy alumnus, John “Dolph” Cone, committed $25,000 in honor of his Grand Guard reunion. A 1958 graduate, Cone hopes his pledge might serve as an example for others who are considering giving back to the college. His gift will create the Dolph Cone-Sandy Prickett Scholarship to support pharmacy students.
“I remember my first introduction to pharmacy when I took Dean Foote’s course. Through that very early experience, I knew that pharmacy education suited me and that it would enable me to be the master of my destiny. I always say, that’s when pharmacy found me, and I found pharmacy.”
Many alumni feel the College of Pharmacy gave them the tools they needed to succeed in their careers and often want to say thank you by supporting future pharmacists. Each reunion class is challenged to continue the tradition of alumni giving by making contributions to support students and faculty within the college.
