The FNSNA has taken bold steps to establish a broad fundraising effort to increase its endowment and triple the amount of scholarships awarded annually to nursing students.
The goal of the endowment campaign is to raise $5 million to support scholarships for undergraduate nursing students in perpetuity. Shortly after launching the quiet phase of the endowment campaign, the country entered an economic recession. Though the economic outlook appeared bleak, the FNSNA Board of Trustees, both past and present, along with FNSNA staff, persevered to secure more than $1 million in pledges and one time gifts. The endowment is now close to reaching $3M.
At the 60th Anniversary Convention & Alumni Reunion in April 2012, the FNSNA publicly launched the Forever Nursing Endowment Campaign. Willingness to support this endeavor is an extraordinary message to nursing students and the future of the nursing profession. The FNSNA looks forward to working with future contributors to establish a legacy of providing scholarships to nursing students for many years to come.
