Your Parade 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 played a critical role in improving patient care and advancing the oncology nursing profession. With your help, the Foundation was able to allocate more than $1,000,000 in funding last year ensuring that aspiring oncology nurses can succeed and become strong leaders in our profession. Every gift helped to fund essential education, research, leadership development, and wellness initiatives for oncology nurses.
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. We hope that you will join us again this year to sustain excellence and compassion in cancer nursing care!
