Each year, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) National Magnet Conference® raises funds to support a nonprofit located within the conference’s host city and the American Nurses Foundation. This year, we will support the following two charities during the conference. This year, the ANCC National Magnet Conference® seeks to raise funds to be split among three charitable organizations: The Veteran Empowerment Organization and the North Fulton Community Charities in North Fulton County in Georgia, and the American Nurses Foundation through a text-to-give campaign challenge.
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 www.veohero.org
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.
We offer services through five program areas: Case Management/Financial Assistance, Client Choice Food Pantry, Client Choice Clothing, Education & Workforce Development, and Community Outreach. Education and workforce development are no-cost programs, and we provide free, onsite childcare that enables single and working parents to attend classes and workshops. To ensure welcoming and equitable access for North Fulton’s growing Hispanic/Latino communities, programs and services are bilingual. Each year NFCC serves thousands of North Fulton residents at two facilities in Roswell, Georgia.
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, scholarships and innovative projects are helping empower nurses and the nursing profession. During the Magnet Conference, donations to the Foundation will support the #EndNurseAbuse campaign. Workplace violence is an under-reported epidemic that has devastating results on the healthcare industry. The Foundation is working to identify strategies to address barriers to nurses and other health care workers reporting violence and abuse.
The text campaign will begin in the near future. Stay tuned for the number to text and text promo words.
Additionally, the American Nurses Foundation is seeking corporate partners interested in leading the challenge with a pledge of $10,000 to match every $1 donated up to that amount. Interested companies or individuals can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
