The $1 million gift from AdventHealth will be paid over three years and include funds for onePULSE Academy — a diversity and inclusion curriculum the museum plans to use in schools and corporate environments.
It also includes at least three years worth of scholarships to its AdventHealth University, which offers associate, bachelor’s and graduate degrees in a range of health professions.
Barbara Poma, CEO of the onePULSE Foundation, said her organization is “extremely grateful” for the hospital company’s contribution.
“Donations like this are critical to help us fulfill our mission, and we appreciate their leadership in inspiring others to give,” she said.
The National Pulse Memorial & Museum, projected to cost upward of $40 million, is set to open in 2022.
The onePULSE Foundation is taking applications for the first round of 49 scholarships through Jan. 31. For more information or to apply, go to onepulsefoundation.org/scholarships/.
