On 30 June 2023 the Nightingale Fund and the Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF) became one charity. Given both organisation’s connections to one of the world’s most famous and influential nurses, it is a fitting union and a privilege to be entrusted with the guardianship of funds raised directly in honour of Florence Nightingale’s work.
The Nightingale Fund is a historically unique charity. Established in 1857, it is the keeper of the original endowment raised as a result of fundraising undertaken for Florence Nightingale towards the end of the Crimean War and continues to support healthcare education in compliance with the original aspirations of Florence Nightingale herself.
To apply for a grant from The Nightingale Fund please complete the application form (link below) and return it to the Honorary Secretary with a current CV and two references.
The grant application notes provide more details and should be read before applying.
The Nightingale Fund is a small charity with limited funds. We continue to rely mainly on the interest from the original endowment to enable grants to be awarded.
