We surpassed our goal of $5,000 in Giving Tuesday Facebook donations, but we are still trying to reach our $5,000 goal of additional direct donations before the end of the year. We are currently at $3,225 and t here's still time to make your end of year charitable deduction to help us meet this goal!  

In 2020 we will use these unrestricted dollars to award more scholarships to conference and to enhance our advocacy efforts to include the voice of nurses in the plan to End the HIV Epidemic in the US. Thanks for your support!
