CARNEGIE, PA, UNITED STATES, July 8, 2024 /EINPresswire / -- The Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation (HPNF) is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded a transformative $1.2 million impact grant from the Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center (HPCC).

The Sandra Lee Schafer Impact Grant, given in memory of the late Sandra Lee Schafer, MN, RN, AOCN®, will empower HPNF to create a legacy of sustainable giving, which will impact the hospice and palliative care community for years to come.

“We are deeply honored and grateful to receive this impact grant from HPCC, given in tribute of Sandy,” said Virginia (Ginger) Marshall, MSN, ACNP-BC, ACHPN®, FPCN, chief executive officer of HPNF.“This funding will have a profound impact on our ability to support the incredible nurses who provide compassionate care to patients and families during some of the most difficult moments of their lives.”

“Amazingly, we received news of the impact grant on May 28, which would have been Sandy's birthday,” said her siblings, Joan Schrenker and Joe Schafer.“This is an incredible honor, and we know she is definitely smiling down on us.”
