Founders' Circle

Dear Leaders and Future Leaders in Nursing Research:

You are invited to join the The Midwest Nursing Research Society Foundation's Founders' Circle! Members of this group pledge $1,000 for each of three consecutive years to endow a fund to be used to fund research grants. The mission of the MNRS Foundation includes raising funds to increase the numbers and amounts of Dissertation and Seed grants awarded each year to our members. Please join us in the Founders' Circle!

We need you in the Founders Circle, demonstrating your support of research by MNRS members.

We look forward to your joining us!

Please email me today.

Lauren S. Aaronson, PhD, RN, FAAN
President, The Midwest Nursing Research Society Foundation
