Cancer Nursing Fund

The Cancer Nursing Fund (CNF) was established on European Cancer Nursing Day 2020.

The fund provides a unique opportunity to support the excellent work that cancer nurses do and advance the profession of cancer nursing in Europe. The CNF’s purpose is to ensure that all people affected by cancer benefit from the care of highly educated, well-informed and competent cancer nurses across the cancer care continuum. The Fund will support activities in the following areas:

• Cancer Nursing Education
• Cancer Nursing Research
• Cancer Nursing Capacity Building
• Innovations in Cancer Nursing

By selecting the donation link below, you will be able to choose which of these areas you would like to support. In particular, the Fund will support projects that expand on the EONS Cancer Nursing Education Framework, develop research by cancer nurses (for example, into patient-reported outcomes), promote capacity building through the provision of a conference travel bursary for cancer nurses who cannot otherwise secure funding to attend, and finally, seek funds to support cancer nurses in developing and trialing innovative methods of cancer care and cancer prevention.

The Cancer Nursing Fund is managed together with the King Badouin Foundation (KBF) in Belgium. The KBF are able to issue Tax Certificates and Letters of Thanks for all donations made inside or outside of Europe to the CNF of 1,000 Euros or more at the end of February in the following year.

Examples of what your donation can do:

• 20 Euros will contribute to the Cancer Nursing Bursary

• 50 Euros can contribute to an unrestricted fund that supports EONS in our work promoting cancer nursing across Europe

• Between 600 and 1500 Euros will support a cancer nurse’s registration, accommodation and travel to an EONS conference
