The Foundation for Nursing Advancement in Massachusetts (FNAMA) is the charitable, professional, and scholarly arm of the American Nurses Association Massachusetts, Inc.
The purpose of the foundation is to advance the nursing profession through philanthropic activities that promote scholarship, nursing research, and innovation.
FNAMA was founded in 2020 as the research, education, and charitable affiliate of ANA Massachusetts. Since inception, we have sought to advance the nursing profession through raising funds for advances in research, education, and clinical practice to the benefit of the whole health care system.
The foundation relies on the generosity of its donors to achieve and expand on its mission and vision. Individuals, corporations, government agencies, and private foundations make it possible for us to undertake potentially life-changing research, support nurses and improve health care in the Commonwealth.
