About Josh’s Fund

Josh's Fund

Established in 1994, Josh’s Fund partners with the Oncology Nursing Society Foundation 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, in 2018 the Josh Gottheil Memorial Endowment for the Promotion of Resiliency at Siteman Cancer Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis and in 2021 and the Josh Gottheil Memorial Nurse Resiliency Fund at Carle Health in Urbana, Illinois were established. Both endowments seek to provide nurses support for balancing the emotional and mental demands of caring for patients with their empathy, compassion and professionalism.

Joshua David Gottheil was a young man with a special charm and a big heart. At a very young age, Josh accomplished a large part of what seemed to be his dream—to support musicians and to bring the music that he loved to audiences. Read more about Josh in the About Josh section.
