Support the Illinois Nurses Foundation

Illinois Nurses Foundation is transforming healthcare through the power of nursing. We are problem solving, generating new ideas, creating opportunities for new leaders, and promoting educational opportunities for the profession.

We need your help! Your charitable giving helps us achieve new milestones such as providing scholarships for those interested in the profession as well as for nurses interested in seeking additional degrees, creating new programs like the 40 under 40 Emerging Nurse Leader awards program and Lessons in Leadership educational sessions, and supporting and celebrating the achievements of individual nurses. There are several ways to give. Please click on the links below to contribute to the growing mission of the Illinois Nurses Foundation. Together we will transform healthcare in Illinois.
