California Nurse-Midwives FOUNDATION!

Meet the California Nurse-Midwives Foundation

CNMF has been around for just over one year, and in that time has raised approximately $65,000.00! ​In 2020, we have supported many projects, including assistance with emergency funds for students, supporting the Aspiring Midwives of Color program, grant funding for mentorship programs for student midwives of color, public education campaigns on midwives and reproductive justice, and many more. We’re excited to do even MORE in 2021!

CNMF is Online!

The California Nurse-Midwives Foundation is excited to announce that we now have our very own Social Media handle and an updated and improved website! @CalNMFoundation

Please follow us on FB, IG, and Twitter, and share widely!

As we continue to fundraise to support important projects and push for the integration of midwives into the maternal healthcare system, we will send occasional updates. If you would like to be removed from the Foundation's mailing list, email us at info@californianursemidwivesfoundation.org.
