Giving Tuesday is right around the corner and we hope you “Answer the Call” to help support Frontier Nursing University students!
Giving Tuesday, taking place on November 30th, is a global movement that inspires people to do good. It encourages people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Generosity brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together. It gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value upon which anyone can act.
We need your help to reach our goal of $5,000 for the FNU Scholarship Fund. Consider giving this year to Frontier Nursing University where your contributions will help us provide scholarships to deserving students that demonstrate our Culture of Caring and support our mission of serving diverse, rural and underserved communities.
Because of the generosity from past Give Tuesday donations, we have been able to provide scholarships to many students who may be struggling to come up with finances for their advanced nursing and midwifery degrees. Many of these recipients share a story similar to Dawn P., a current Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner FNU student.
“My continuation in the Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program has put a financial strain on my family. Due to COVID-19 and schools being closed, I have had to reduce the number of hours of work due to homeschooling,” Dawn wrote in her scholarship essay. “Not working has dramatically reduced the household income for my family. Also, this year, in particular, has presented additional challenges for our family, like in many other families, due to COVID-19.”
Dawn hopes to one day own and open an independent, holistically integrated healthcare practice for her community. Being a scholarship recipient helps ease any financial burdens she may have now to help her eventually open her own practice.
Besides a monetary donation, there are additional ways you can support FNU and help us meet our goal. Here are a few ways you can help:
- Create a crowdfunding campaign or share FNU’s campaign.
- Send texts or emails to friends and family asking them to join you in supporting FNU. Your text may sound something like this: Help Frontier Nursing University provide scholarships to students facing financial hardships or serious illnesses to continue their education.
