ENA state councils and local chapters wage a friendly competition each year in support of the future of emergency nursing. In fact, the ENA State Fundraising Challenge is the ENA Foundation’s largest source of funding! The Challenge has a new theme each year, and state councils and chapters plan local fundraising drives and events centered around the theme. States that raise $5,000 or more have the privilege of naming their own academic scholarship the following year.

Congratulations to the 2017 State Challenge State winners!

 States that had the largest percentage increase per capita:

#1 - New Jersey

#2 - South Carolina

States that had the largest individual donations per state:

#1 - New Jersey

#2 – Maryland

The 2017 State Fundraising Challenge ended May 31, 2017, but we’re still counting the generous contributions. Thank you to the many ENA members who generously contributed to the future of the profession.
