Giving Day | Founders' Board

Truly special individuals, nurses play an indispensable role in healthcare. They are the reassuring voice when fear and uncertainty grip patients’ hearts and the comforting embrace for children facing pain and discomfort. Advocates for every patient’s need - big or small - their dedication, kindness and resilience make them truly special in the many lives they touch.

Support Giving Day to Benefit Lurie Children’s Nurses - the Heartbeat of our Hospital

Nursing professionals represent the largest workforce at Lurie Children’s with 1,700 nurses and 375 advanced practice providers. Generous donors like you make prioritizing their support and wellbeing possible.

How to guide for starting your own fundraiser

With your help, we can continue to provide our nursing professionals with the tools and resources to maintain and enhance their professional credentials and ensure their ongoing health and emotional well-being, allowing them to bring their best selves to work in service of our patients and families.

Here's How Your Donations Can Make a Difference

$10,000 can provide a Nursing Pathways Scholarship for a Lurie Children’s employee to pursue their Bachelors of Science in Nursing.

$2,500 can provide on-site training for nurses to seek specialty care certification and recertification in their area of expertise without ever having to leave the building.

$7,500 can enable nursing directors to attend an annual retreat and take time away to support their own emotional well-being and maintain their joy in practice.

$1,000 can support Lurie Children’s presence in the community by increasing specialty clinic offerings provided by nurses in our mobile health units.

$5,000 can renovate a RECHARGE room in one of our intensive care units for nurses to be able to step out after a particularly difficult shift to process their feelings and recharge before returning to the unit or their own families.

“I wish I could recognize every single wonderful nurse that gave us much needed support but it was honestly every single one. It became clear that it wasn’t just one nurse, not just one shift, not just one day; it was the culture among all of the nurses at Lurie Children’s.”
