Our Mission

Founded in 2006, the Jonas Center for Nursing Excellence’s mission is to improve healthcare through nursing. We make grants that advance scholarship, leadership and innovation, and collaborate on initiatives with other leaders in the nursing field, with a focus on fostering new partnerships across the philanthropic, business, policy and education sectors.

The Jonas Center is funded through the Barbara and Donald Jonas Family Fund, a larger initiative that also supports programs that focus on mental health and at-risk youth.
