Developing the nursing profession to transform healthcare in Illinois.
INF Annual Report
Celebration of Nursing – Year in Review
We’re excited to share the release of our 2021 Annual Report!
We welcome you to celebrate with us another successful year. We truly appreciate our donors and sponsors who helped us move our mission forward.
Alma J Labunski Tribute
On July 2, 2022, the Illinois Nurses Foundation lost a dear friend, colleague, and founding board member, Dr. Alma Joel Labunski PhD, MS, RN. We have established an Alma J Labunski Tribute campaign to honor her work. Alma spent a lifetime devoted to nursing, nursing education, and service to others. For twenty-three years she served in leadership roles on the Foundation board, served on various committees, and as the editor and then editor emeritus for The Nursing Voice. We were honored to have served with her and were humbled by her support. The board of directors wishes to pay tribute to her and her effort on behalf of nursing. We are asking for donations of $1.00 for each year of her 23 years of service with the foundation. Let’s all commemorate her service with a $23 donation today!
50/50 Cash Raffle
2022 will be the 10th year that we have gathered on the first Saturday in December for the Illinois Nurses Foundation’s Holiday Gala & Fundraiser. This event is a year-end celebration of nurses and the nursing profession. This year as we ask others to support our important work we will also be giving a little back with our 50/50 CASH RAFFLE.
Buy a ticket for $10 and maybe you will be the lucky winner. Ticket sales will begin on September 22, 2022, and the drawing will be on December 3rd at the event.
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.
