Your help is needed!

Nightingale Awards of Pennsylvania seeks broader support from organizations as well as individuals across the state. To guarantee optimal care for generations to come, funding for education and recognition of Pennsylvania’s nurses must be increased. Therefore, the foundation has launched a campaign to increase its capacity to provide nursing scholarships and recognition for those seeking careers in nursing and to support continued learning for the evolving and growing professional practitioners of nursing.


Paying by Check: Please download our 2017 Sponsorship Opportunities form. You can donate to the Nightingale foundation or place an ad in our Gala program book using this form as well.

Paying by Credit Card: Please complete our online Donation Form or Sponsorship Form for 2017. If you're placing a Gala program book ad, use the sponsorship form. 


By supporting Nightingale Awards of Pennsylvania, corporations, foundations, and individuals will demonstrate support for the nursing profession and society as a whole. Increased financial support for nurses such as that provided by Nightingale Awards of Pennsylvania stimulates interest in nursing as a career, furnishes needed funding for recruiting and preparing a culturally diverse profession, enhances the retention of nurses, recognizes excellence, and provides a needed vehicle for re-education and re-training of the nurse workforce to meet the evolving needs of health care service delivery in Pennsylvania. Nurses make a huge difference! With your help, you will make a difference by supporting the Nightingale Awards of Pennsylvania.

Your generosity is appreciated!
