The human toll of the Coronavirus-19 pandemic is being felt throughout the nation and most acutely by the nation’s largest body of healthcare professionals — nurses. These nurses will deliver the vast majority of patient care as COVID-19 spreads across the country. To share your thanks and support for nurses on the frontlines you can make a donation to the American Nurses Foundation Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses.
The Fund has four focus areas, which are based on information we received from tens of thousands of responses to the ANA COVID-19 survey, our townhalls, and outreach from nurses to the ANA as well as state nursing associations. In addition to addressing the needs of nurses, the Fund is an opportunity for the public to support and show gratitude through a text-to-give campaign, individual giving and corporate donations.
This national effort kicked off with a $1.5 million grant from Johnson & Johnson and the Tylenol brand. Since then many other major organizations have made generous contributions in support of nurses.
