Fundraising Challenge

The ENA Foundation (ENAF) provides educational scholarships and research grants in the discipline of emergency nursing. In fact, the ENA State Fundraising Challenge is the ENA Foundation’s largest source of funding! State councils and chapters plan local fundraising drives and events centered around the theme (Get Jazzed about Scholarships) to raise funds. Your chapter donations will go towards Texas’s total contributions. States that raise $5,000 or more have the privilege of naming their own academic scholarship the following year.

So did you know, Texas ENA State Council has a generous history of supporting the ENAF? TXENA has two named ENA scholarships (Vicki Patrick Legacy Scholarship and Mary Leblond Advocacy Scholarship). Let’s go for a third named scholarship! We can do this!!

From now through May 31, 2018, ENAF will be accepting contributions. Please consider the below two options:

    1. As in past years, please consider a chapter contribution of one dollar per
    2. The ENA Foundation is excited about a NEW opportunity only going to
      happen during this State Challenge. The ENAF is selling bricks for the NEW
      ENA building in Chicago. The bricks will be displayed in the commemorative
      patio and are a great way to commemorate chapters/councils and individuals.

      • $250.00 donation – 4″x8″ engraved brick
      • $500.00 donation – 8″x8″ engraved brick

For the chapters to get credit for the bricks, please send money directly to the
ENAF. Visit When you make your donation, please make
sure you mark which state you are from. This will give your Texas ENA credit
towards this year’s State Challenge. Please email with the
donation amount sent to ENAF so we can track our success!

So, “Get Jazzed about Scholarships” and help TXENA reach their goal and
support and ENAF! Thank you in advance for your support.
