Making a donation to the Foundation

We rely on your donations to support nurses and midwives who care for you.

Your donation will help support the professional development of nurses and midwives who follow on in Florence’s footsteps by impacting patient care and healthcare policy and practice.

Your donation helps us to deliver our promise:

  • Select the very best talent in nursing and midwifery as scholars of the Foundation. Through our bespoke scholarship programmes, we will inspire, nurture and support their future success. Our programmes are designed with, and delivered by, our partners within and outside of health and social care.
  • Connect nurses and midwives to become the positive voice of nursing and midwifery.
  • Shine a light on nurses and midwives and their practice. We will commemorate Florence’s legacy and the impact she had on modern day nursing and midwifery. We will identify practice that is not evidenced based, support new research to generate new knowledge, communicate and celebrate our achievements and the impact our work has on improvements in health and social care.

How your donations have impacted our scholars...

I believe my learning in the scholarship has impacted on policy and patient care as well as my development and my new post as a Professor of Nursing and Intellectual Disabilities

Owen Barr

Professor of Nursing and Intellectual Disabilities, Leadership scholarship, completed 2015

Since my scholarship, my work has impacted policy and patient care, as well as influencing staff in my own organisation and others across Wales

Ruth Friel

Cwm Taf University Health Board NHS Wales, Leadership scholarship, completed 2017

As a result of my scholarship, I was promoted and as a direct result my skills in training and my knowledge base has improved. The way I interact with colleagues has changed and my confidence and personal impact is enhanced. My work, and the way I am able to impact allows me to influence corporate policy.

Jane Eades

Marie Curie, Leadership scholarship, completed 2017.

Since the scholarship, I changed direction from being in nurse education, to working with the District General Manager on how to bring about change for those with cancer. The end result was setting up a charity and a limited company with the help of the health authority. The charity is now in its 30th year of providing a truly holistic service for those with cancer and support for their families. It is totally independent of the health authority but it is a service provider. I am now a Trustee of the Charity and at present also acting CEO. The scholarship taught me that if you believe you can bring about change then it is in your hands to make it happen.
