The Lucretia H. Richter Nursing Scholarships derive their funding from three sources: first, the annual
contribution of Dr. Goetz Richter, Lu's loving and devoted husband; from fundraising activities undertaken
by members of the scholarship organization; and, from private donations from the public. Donations of any
amount are gratefully accepted by the Committee.
As a direct donation to nursing education, or as a contribution in honor of, or in memory of, a family member
or friend, or through the purchase of our fundraising offerings, your gift to the The Lucretia H. Richter Nursing
Scholarship Committee will be frugally managed to make every dollar count in the advancement of nursing
An Outstanding Contribution
In 2016, the Committee lost a dedicated member when Monica Cloonan lost her life to cancer. Monica had
been an active member for decades, participating in the selection process, the luncheon preparations
and the presentation of awards. Even death could not curb her contributions. At her behest, in lieu
of flowers, her family designated the Lucretia H. Richter Scholarship as a recipient of donations in
her memory. Her family and friends must have been well-aware of her dedication to the program as
the donations flowed into the fund. It became the largest combined donation in the 35-year history
of the scholarship fund. We offer our most sincere gratitude to all those who honored Monica's memory
with a donation. The scholarship program continues because of such generosity.
Please consider a donation to the Lu Richter Fund in your charitable giving. For more information, see our
