The TMA Foundation (TMAF) recognized 23 Major Donors for their generosity and vision for a healthier Texas at the TMA Winter Conference on Jan. 28 in Austin. These TMA and TMA Alliance members and friends of medicine were honored for donating at least $10,000 during their years as a TMAF donor. This brings the total of Major Donors to 202.
Seven levels recognize the lasting impact made by Major Donors, ranging from the entry level (Pacesetter) of $10,000 in cumulative cash contributions to the top level (Visionaries) of $1 million or more in lifetime giving. As a lasting tribute of their generosity and vision, each Major Donor name is inscribed on a brass plate as part of the recognition walls on the 10th floor of the TMA building. Major Donors also have their names listed in a variety of publications and receive special recognition at the TMA Winter Conference and an invitation to the VIP reception at the TMAF annual gala.
Also on Jan. 28, TMAF presented its 2017 John P. McGovern Champion of Health Awards to two Texas programs that are creating a "Healthy Now" and a "Healthy Future." This year's top winner is Seed to Soul — Growing Healthy Families From the Garden to Table, a program of Promise of Peace Gardens, Dallas. The program promotes healthier lifestyles through a garden and cooking classes at Bayles Elementary School in Dallas. The second place winner is the WATCH Champions of Health Award of the Fort Bend Independent School District. Read more about these programs.
