Welcome!
"It is not how much we do--
  it is how much love we put into the doing."
--Mother Teresa
Inspirational Message
     The purpose of the Martha C. Gooding Foundation for Compassionate Nursing is to promote patient-centered compassionate nursing care: (1) by providing scholarships to deserving nursing students, and (2) through the education and training of nurses and nursing students on the importance of non-clinical aspects of patient care.
Foundation Details
     The Foundation has been organized as a not-for-profit entity in the State of Texas. We are currently in the process of applying for a tax-exempt designation from the Internal Revenue Service, which we expect to receive by the end of the year.
Foundation Purpose
"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion.
  If you want to be happy, practice compassion."
"I have an almost complete disregard of precedent, and a faith in the possibility of something better. It irritates me to be told how things have always been done. I defy the tyranny of precedent. I go for anything new that might improve the past."
