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 $30 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.

Our three core pillars define the Oncology Nursing Foundation as we aspire to be good stewards for our donors.

Education
Research
Leadership

Oncology nurses give fully of their vocation and compassion. The Oncology Nursing Foundation makes it possible to give directly to the nurses who specialize in cancer care. All gifts ensure that the next generation of oncology nurses will be there for all of us, in our greatest time of need.


The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), the Oncology Nursing Foundation (ONF), and the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation (ONCC) are committed to supporting and advancing oncology nurses to deliver quality and equitable care to patients with cancer. 

Diversity

Equity

creates fair treatment and access by establishing and upholding policies and processes that remove and prevent the formation of barriers for all stakeholders who engage with ONS, ONF and ONCC

Inclusion

fosters an environment where all stakeholders are able to participate fully and have a sense of belonging because they feel welcomed, respected, and valued
