Alamo Colleges Foundation Awarded $250,000 for Endowed Scholarship

The Nancy Smith Hurd Foundation, a new charitable foundation with a current value of $50 million, as part of its inaugural grant round, has awarded $250,000 to the Alamo Colleges Foundation to increase the endowment of the Nancy Smith Hurd Endowed Scholarship for nursing, pre-nursing and allied health students at Alamo Colleges. The foundaton supports "programs that improve education, health, family well-being, arts, culture and animal welfare," according to its mission statement. 
 
"The foundation will be honoring the legacy of Mrs. Hurd and the community she cared about," said Jane Phipps, chair of the Hurd Foundation's board of trustees.
 
The late Nancy Smith Hurd, a San Antonio native, supported numerous philanthropic organizations addressing needs in education, charity, arts, medical research and nursing. She had a deep respect for the nurses who care for and tend the sick and wounded. She was a descendent of the McKean family, who came to Texas from Tennessee before the fall of the Alamo. She graduated from Alamo Heights High School and attended Trinity University.
 
In 1957, she married the late John G. Hurd of Laredo, who was a widower with four young children.  In 1970, her husband was appointed as Ambassador to the Republic of South Africa, where he served until 1975. She passed away in 2010.
 
Phipps said the Nancy Smith Hurd Foundation makes grants only to pre-selected organizations. The foundation uses an internal process to identify grant candidates and does not accept unsolicited funding requests.
