Honor the Legacy of a Nurse
Whether we’re responding to the extraordinary life someone has lived or to our grief when they die, it’s common to share stories about inspirational people by contributing to the causes they love. The Illinois Nurses Foundation has two distinct programs meant to honor the legacy of a nurse.
Applications are open all year – reviews are conducted in April and October. Did you know that the INF awards seed ( up to $500), small ($501-$1500) and large ($1501-$5000) grants for small projects, quality improvement/innovation initiatives and nurse-led research? Application are accepted online and can be revised and edited at any time. Only complete applications are reviewed.

A Small Group of Nurses Can Accomplish Great Things
The INF provided grants that funded successful Public Health Nurse Academic-Practice Partnerships. Students from BSN, RN-BSN and MSN programs implemented projects serving local health department employees, community providers, parents, caregivers, and high-school students. Topics included employee wellness, sexually transmitted infection prevention, immunization adherence, and asthma.
