What is an endowment?
An endowment is perpetual fund that provides income for a charitable cause you are passionate about.
Are you passionate about Associate Degree Nursing?
M-OADN has established an endowment A.D. Nursing scholarship at nursing programs
who are also a N-OADN Agency Member. At this time of year faculty sign up to make a
monthly contribution to the foundation at their schools and so please remember this scholarship!
M-OADN will continue contributing and with the help of individuals who are passionate about
A.D. Nursing, this fund will reach endowment. Your gifts are tax deductable through the specific college foundation
and the financial assistance to a struggling nursing student is unmeasurable. Please help - make a contribution.
