About Josh’s Fund

Josh's Fund

Established in 1994, Josh’s Fund partners with the Oncology Nursing Society Foundation (ONS) to award educational grants to oncology nurses annually. To date, over one hundred oncology nurses internationally have been selected to receive the Josh Gottheil Career Development Award, enabling them to participate in courses and programs that further professional knowledge and skills in patient care. Expanding the fund’s reach, as of 2018 the Josh Gottheil Memorial Endowment for the Promotion of Resiliency established at Siteman Cancer Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis provides nurses support for balancing the emotional and mental demands of caring for patients with their empathy, compassion and professionalism.
