Each year, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) National Magnet Conference® and ANCC Pathway to Excellence Conference® raise funds to support a nonprofit located within the conference’s host city and the American Nurses Foundation.
This year, the co-located conferences seek to raise approximately $50,000 to be shared with a local charity – the PHL Cares Fund, and the American Nurses Foundation through a text-to-give campaign challenge. Approximately half of the total funds raised (that’s projected to be $25,000!) will go to PHL Cares.
PHL CARES FUND
PHL Cares is a business-led initiative investing in pathways to housing solutions that is changing lives of those in need of shelter and a path towards independence. Contributions to the PHL Cares Fund help provide long-term housing for those suffering from chronic homelessness.
American Nurses Foundation
The American Nurses Foundation is the 501(c)(3) affiliate of the American Nurses Association and the ANCC. The Foundation’s leadership development programs, nurse research, and innovative projects are helping empower nurses and the nursing profession.
During the Magnet and Pathway conferences, donations to the Foundation will support the Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses. As the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved, so have nurses’ needs. Beyond providing immediate critical relief, we are preparing for a time of recovery and providing deeper support and healing for nurses as they process the full impact of all they risked and lost during the pandemic. We also are preparing to rebuild, evolving the practice of nursing to transform healthcare. Caring for nurses in this way translates back into exemplary care for patients since it increases nurses’ capacity to pour themselves into their absolutely critical work. Healthier nurses lead to healthier communities. Learn more at givetonursing.org.
