TNPF Emergency Assistance Fund
Share |

The TNP Foundation (TNPF) Emergency Assistance Fund was first established in 2017 as a result of the extensive damage left behind by Hurricane Harvey. In an effort to provide some assistance, the Texas Nurse Practitioner Foundation established an Emergency Assistance Fund to aid TNP members and their families in need.



Donations will be used to assist TNP members who have experienced emergency situations that require them to seek financial assistance.  TNPF is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; EIN 74-2676501.

The TNP Foundation has full control and authority over the use of donated funds, and contributors may not earmark funds for the benefit of a particular individual or family.
