Give the Gift of Caring

Your contribution enables WCSI to expand its mission to restore the profound nature of caring-healing within a caring science framework. By working In stewardship with the current health care systems worldwide — we aim to retain and nurture our most precious resource: caring professional nurses and trans-disciplinary care team members.

Tax Deductible

The Watson Caring Science Institute is an international non-profit foundation 501C(3), created to advance the philosophies, theories and practices of Human Caring, originated by Distinguished Professor Jean Watson, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN, who holds the Murchinson-Scoville Endowed Chair in Caring Science at the University of Colorado Denver. WCSI is dedicated to help the current health care system retain its most precious resource — competent, caring professional nurses — while preparing a new generation of health professionals in a broader model of Caring Science. Your contribution is tax deductible (Tax ID# 26-0803334) and will help WCSI to ensure caring and healing for the public, reduce nurse turnover, and decrease costs to the system. We sincerely appreciate your support and generosity.

An official letter confirming the total donation amount you have contributed to WCSI throughout the calendar year will be mailed to you in January. This letter will support your charitable donation tax deduction.

We invite you to select a donation level that honors where you are
