A chapter within Region One of Sigma, Nu Xi at-Large Chapter was chartered in 1992 and is affiliated with three university schools of nursing in the San Francisco East Bay Area: California State University East Bay, Holy Names University, and Samuel Merritt University. Celebrating its 25th Anniversary in 2017-18, Nu Xi at-Large took the bold step of incorporating as a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation in California on November 15, 2017.  In recognition of its efforts to engage members and to collaborate with other Sigma Chapters, Nu Xi received its 10th Chapter Key Award in November 2021.

2022 Annual Fundraising Campaign

One year ago, the Nu Xi at-Large board of directors approved a plan to subsidize the induction fees of prelicensure undergraduate nursing students who self-identify as having substantial financial hardships. We asked for your help to fund these subsidies and you responded!  We raised enough funds to assist 48 students with their Sigma/Nu Xi induction fees and these were distributed among our three universities. Considering this generosity, we did not hold a 2021 general scholarship fundraising drive, but we still awarded nine $1,000 scholarships in addition to the subsidies.  

This year, we have decided to make it a single “ask.” Our 2022-2023 budget includes $9,000 for scholarships plus $2,000 for subsidies. This subsidy amount would cover the $80 International component of the induction fees for 25 students. The student inductees will be responsible for paying the remaining $40 Nu Xi at-Large Chapter fee. Board members believe that students payment of the $40 portion of the membership dues is an important demonstration of commitment by new members as we seek to recruit diverse, active, long-standing members into our ranks. This year, we are including all prelicensure students eligible for induction: traditional BSNs, accelerated BSNs, and entry-level MSNs.

Please take a minute to contribute to this important campaign.  One hundred percent of your donation to this Nu Xi fundraising campaign will go to scholarships and subsidies.

Nu Xi is a tax-exempt organization (Fed tax ID, 82-3108186) as per Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All contributions are used to further our tax-exempt purpose. No goods, services, or benefits other than the joy of giving to a worthy organization are provided in exchange for this contribution.
