TNF’s Honor A Nurse Program

The Tennessee nurses Foundation (TNF) welcomes you to publicly recognize a special nurse in your life. With your $50 tax-deductible donation to TNF, your honored nurse’s name will appear in the Tennessee Nurse, (a quarterly publication sent to all Registered Nurses in the State of Tennessee), as well as in the designated “Honor A Nurse” section under the Tennessee Nurses Foundation’s link on this website. A photo and brief paragraph may also be submitted to further recognize your honored nurse.

This program is available to honor any Tennessee nurse. Honor a nurse friend, nurse family member, or nurse colleague by marking their anniversary, birthday, special event or occasion, or as a memorial. Patients, or the patient’s family, may honor a nurse that truly made a difference in their care or the care of a family member.

Your $50 donation will go toward continued support of the TNF and it’s work pertaining to scholarships, and grants that support the needs of nurses in Tennessee. TNF is a nonprofit, 501(c),(3) organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law and support the mission of TNF.

TNF’s TNA Membership Dues Scholarship Program

TNF’s TNA Membership Dues Scholarship Program is a program that allows a tax-deductible donation to be given for TNA membership dues, thereby sponsoring a Registered Nurses’s membership in the Tennessee Nurses Association. Donation amounts are for annual dues only. TNF will accept a Reduced Dues donation only if the person being sponsored qualifies for that dues rate. TNA Reduced Membership dues, ($145), are for RNs who are not employed, RNs who are full-time students, newly licensed graduates, or age 62+ and not earning more than Social Security allows. All other RNs will qualify for the Full Rate of TNA/ANA dues, ($290), or ($199) for the State-Only dues.

Please have the RNs name, mailing address, daytime phone and email address ready before you click below to make your donation. If you do not have a specific RN you would like the donation to go to, check ‘A Deserving RN’ once you get to the donation page and the TNF Board of Trustees will designate the membership for you.

The mission of the Tennessee Nurses Foundation is to promote professional excellence in nursing. Membership in Tennessee’s professional nurses association, TNA, is the essence of being a nursing professional. Your kind donation will help a nurse in pursuit of that endeavor.
