Dear prospective supporter, donor, and benefactor,
Nursing as an art and science has a humanistic content and story. Through the nursing profession, Filipino-American nurses’ contributions in society have touched lives and developed leaders through the Philippine Nurses’ Association of America (PNAA). Since its establishment in 1979, PNAA envisioned an archive gallery to showcase significant original artifact, photo, mural, and other collectible items to preserve Filipino-American nurses’ philanthropic work and contribution to nursing science and healthcare in the United States.
The PNAA Archives Committee through the support of the Philippine Nurses Association of America Foundation (PNAAF) is spearheading the fundraising for the Filipino Nurses’ Memory Project that will establish an archive gallery room in the Legacy Building Headquarters, North Brunswick, New Jersey. Giving a place for these timeless memorabilia in the archive gallery room will preserve PNAA’s legacy for future generations.
We hope that through these curated memorabilia and with your generous support, we can honor the hard work, sacrifices, and compassion that Filipino nurses are known. We are seeking champion donors who will sponsor Filipino-American nurses’ collections or body of work (book, old photographs, handcrafts). The name of the champion donors will be written on the display unit as a token of appreciation. There are different levels where you can show your support and be part of this significant legacy:
(1) Archive Room Champion: $20,000 – Name embossed in gold and written on the front of the room
(5) Glass Case Champion: $5,000 – Name embossed in a silver plate and affixed in the glass
(10) Memorabilia Champion: $3,000*
(3) Mural Champion: $2,000*
(20) Picture Champion: $1,000*
* Name embossed in wood plate and displayed on the wall
Individual donations will also be appreciated for those people who would like to contribute to preserving the memorabilia and upkeep of the art gallery room. The PNAAF will be accepting pledges of donation and scheduled installment payments can be arranged. Please send your donation to PNAAF Treasurer Martha Cabarios with check payable to PNAAF. All contributions are tax-deductible.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and we hope that you will be part of this historical journey.
