The mission of the Oncology Nursing Foundation is to support cancer nursing excellence.

Since 1981, the Oncology Nursing Foundation, through generous contributions from individuals and institutions, has provided more than $32 million in funding to support oncology nursing education, research and leadership development. This funding has translated to career development awards, academic scholarships, research grants, a myriad of specialized educational initiatives, as well as nurse resiliency support. The Foundation’s activities have played a critical role in improving patient care and advancing the oncology nursing profession.

The Oncology Nursing Foundation is a national public, non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable organization headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, and dedicated to oncology nurses from around the world. The Foundation welcomes contributions from the community-at-large in support of the Foundation’s mission. Please contact us to learn more about supporting nurses as they bring excellence in caring to patients with cancer.
