Your Support Makes an Impact

Of our 209 ONS chapters, more than 80 chapters participated, raising more than $75,000 to benefit the oncology nursing community during last year's 11th Annual Parade of Chapters.

These funds were essential in ensuring that aspiring oncology nurses can succeed and become strong leaders in our profession. All donations from the Parade of Chapters campaign in 2021 helped the Foundation meet the ONS Challenge, a fundraising campaign that had been running for most of last year. In honor of the Foundation’s 40th anniversary, ONS set aside an additional gift of $40,000 for the oncology nursing community to unlock. If the Foundation could raise $60,000 for oncology nurses leveraging this special challenge during 2021, ONS will donate the additional $40,000 to support the needs of oncology nurses. With the generosity and support of the entire community, the Foundation was able to meet this challenge.
