About the Massachusetts Nurses Foundation
Advancing the Profession
The Massachusetts Nurses Foundation is a non-profit organization, established in 1981, whose mission is to support scholarship & research in nursing and health care professions. The primary goal of the MNF is to advance the profession of nursing and healthcare by supporting the education of nurses. The foundation provides:
- Scholarships and grants to nurses and students of nursing and health care professionals.
- Support of research, which is significant to the profession of nursing and of public interest.
- Administration of scholarship funds for alumni associations, schools of nursing, organizations, foundations and individuals interested in nursing.
The MNF raises funds and dispenses scholarships & grants to qualified recipients who have applied for assistance to further their careers or study clinical issues that are essential to the improvement of health care.
The MNF announces its second on-line auction!
This auction will run September 16 – October 5, 2012
The MNF is taking a unique approach to raise funds for scholarships. We invite you to take a look at the Massachusetts Nurses Foundation (MNF) On-line Auction to Benefit Scholarships for Nurses and Healthcare Practitioners. Please take a look at the NEWEST items in our catalogue, with more items being added.
The auction website is www.biddingforgood.com/mnf. For additional information about the MNF you can also visit www.massnurses.org/about-mna/mnf
What makes this event so powerful is that its reach is virtually unlimited … we expect all of our visitors to spread the word about this event using email as well as word of mouth! It’s a powerful example of the “viral” nature of the Internet, and how people can come together online to support a cause.
The MNF is using exciting online software from cMarket, Inc., a Cambridge, MA, organization focused on supporting non-profit organizations. The auction will run from September 16 – October 5, and promises to have a major impact on our community.
Since everyone will be talking about this event and bidding on items like tickets, trips, sports memorabilia, etc. we thought you might want to take this opportunity to feature the changing face of fundraising on the Internet and drawing attention to a very worthy cause.
We look forward to introducing you to the MNF Online Auction, and appreciate your support, please spread the word!
