On Colorado Gives Day, we’ll be celebrating our accomplishments and making good
happen for nurses in Colorado. We invite you to join us by helping us share the news about Colorado
Gives Day and invite your family, friends and your personal network to participate. Every gift is tax-deductible. The Colorado Nurses Foundation is committed to making a collective impact on a
diverse, inclusive, and equitable care environment for all Colorado nurses and the Coloradans
they serve. We embrace the uniqueness of all nurses and the kaleidoscope of humans of every
race, color, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability,
age, veteran status, or immigration path who call Colorado home. Our commitment to these
values is central to our mission and guides the development and implementation of our programs
and initiatives that foster nursing excellence and promotes the leadership role of nurses to create a
sustainable healthcare system for Colorado. This day of giving is one of the many ways you can
make a real difference.
Since 1987 the Colorado Nurses Foundation has recognized 768 nurses for excellence in nursing. Of these nurses, 212 are recipients of the Nightingale Award for their achievements in the nursing profession.
Annually the foundation awards scholarships to students at the undergraduate and graduate level. Since 2012 the foundation has awarded over $350,000 in scholarships to Colorado nursing students.
The foundation also awards grants to support research and projects in nursing. Since 2012 the foundation has awarded over $115,000 in grants supporting applicants' important research and projects.
