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.

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 Foundation Staff is happy to answer any questions you may have about funding for oncology nurses, charitable donations, and more.
The Oncology Nursing Foundation Board of Trustees are a committed group of individuals from a variety of backgrounds who ensure the mission of the Oncology Nursing Foundation is fulfilled.
DEI Commitment Statement
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. We know that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are critical to our efforts in supporting those who provide care for diverse patient populations. We define DEI as:
|means all the ways that individuals differ from one another, which includes race, ethnicity, and gender as well as age, differing abilities, military service, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion and beliefs, background, experience, and education.||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.||fosters an environment where all stakeholders are able to participate fully and have a sense of belonging because they feel welcomed, respected, and valued.|
Oncology nurses continually exhibit caring, grace, and exceptional competency in their careers. We have highlighted just a few of their stories that illustrate how strong and unwavering they carry themselves.
Developed for the Foundation’s 40 Ways to Wellness Celebration held in August 2021, we have assembled a selection of resources to help nurses in developing healthy routines, learning stress management techniques, and practicing self-care.
