Charitable Giving

Each year, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) National Magnet Conference® and Pathway to Excellence Conference raises funds to support a nonprofit located within the conference’s host city and the American Nurses Foundation.

This year, the ANCC National Magnet Conference® and Pathway to Excellence Conference seeks to raise approximately $50,000 to be shared with two local charities – Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO) and North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) here in Atlanta, 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 VEO and NFCC.

The Veteran Empowerment Organization

The Veteran Empowerment Organization exists to help Veterans in need connect with vital resources that assist in their holistic well-being, and empower them to make positive changes in their life. Learn more at

North Fulton Community Charities

North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) serves economically vulnerable neighbors in a five-city area of northern Fulton County.  Our mission is to ease hardship and foster financial stability through comprehensive programs and services that combat housing and food insecurity and create pathways out of poverty. 

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.

Text-To-Give partners will receive additional recognition and visibility throughout the conference including: signage throughout the event, recognition on the Magnet app, verbal acknowledgement from the podium in general sessions, and inclusion in post-event publications and communications.

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
