American Nurses Foundation Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses

March 27, 2020

The American Nurses Foundation is supporting nurses on the front lines of the COVID-19 response. We have launched a national fund for the public to address the emerging needs identified by the American Nurses Association to respond to the health threat to nurses posed by the virus. These include: 

  • Providing direct assistance to nurses in partnership with Nurse's House and other organizations
  • Ensuring nurses have access to the latest science-based information 
  • Driving the national advocacy focused on nurse and patients 
  • Aiding nurses' mental health and well-being in this unprecedented and long-term stressful environment.  

Seed funding in the amount of $1 million has been committed by Johnson & Johnson and they will be launching a campaign to drive Text to Give contributions. This effort is unfolding in terms of needs and contributions and we will keep you posted.  We will also share opportunities to be a part of shaping the programs we put in place and making sure monies get to nurses all across the country.
