The WIN Development Committee works to raise $20,000 annually to meet WIN’s portion of the joint research grants with Sigma Theta Tau International, the America Nurses Foundation, and the Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science. We are pleased to announce that WIN met its fund-raising goal for the year ending on June 30, 2020. Thank you to our donors!
The Development Committee has established an Endowment Fund in order to expand or create new funding opportunities to WIN members over time. Any monies raised over the Annual Fund of $20,000 will be placed into the Endowment to facilitate its growth.
The Development Committee has implemented a number of actions in recent years, including:
- Conversion of Development Year to the July 1–June 30 WIN Fiscal Year;
- Adoption of a Donor Recognition Program with 6 levels, including: Platinum – $5,000 and more; Gold – $2,500 – $4,999; Diamond – $1,000 – $2,499; Silver – $500 – $999; Bronze – $250 – $499; and Copper – $1 – $249;
- Creation of a brochure explaining Legacy Contributions to potential donors;
- Recommendation to the WIN Board of a dedicated Investment Account for endowment monies. The Board approved the recommendation.
The Development Committee will continue to work on developing new fundraising strategies for future years. We welcome any ideas you may have to tap new funding sources that will enable WIN to meet its mission of Connecting a diverse community of nurses in the West to improve health through excellence in nursing research, practice, and education.
