Celebrate #GivingSeason with a Donation to the ENA Foundation

November 27, 2018 #GivingSeason ENA Foundation Giving Tuesday

Foundation supports emergency nurses through scholarships, continuing education and research grants

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (Nov. 27, 2018) – On Giving Tuesday, the ENA Foundation kicked off its year-end #GivingSeason campaign by encouraging donations that invest in community health by supporting the emergency nurses who care for patients when they need it most.

As the Emergency Nurses Association’s philanthropic arm, the Foundation in 2018 awarded approximately $435,000 in scholarships, continuing education and research grants to emergency nurses. During #GivingSeason, the Foundation has set a goal of receiving contributions from 100 new or returning donors by Dec. 31.

“The ENA Foundation does so many good things for emergency nurses. Whether it’s scholarships to attend our annual conference or seek that next degree, or money that makes a research project possible, the foundation makes such a meaningful impact on the lives of our members,” said ENA Foundation Chairperson Steven Jewell, BSN, RN, CEN, CPEN. “None of this would be possible without the generosity of donors who truly appreciate the contributions emergency nurses make to the communities they serve.”

Through Dec. 31, donations can be made with a few simple clicks on the ENA Foundation’s #GivingSeason page. Each gift to the Foundation is a thank you to emergency nurses who save lives every day.

“Any day is a great day to support the ENA Foundation. Giving Tuesday and our #GivingSeason are great opportunities to change the lives of emergency nurses,” said ENA President Jeff Solheim, MSN, RN, CEN, TCRN, CFRN, FAEN, FAAN.
