Your Support Helped Us Care for More Texans in 2017
By David Doolittle


Ensuring the well-being of your community and Texas as a whole sometimes involves more than treating patients and preventing illness.

At times it means helping organizations like the Texas Medical Association Foundation (TMAF) create a healthier future for more Texans.

The TMA Foundation would like to thank the 1,374 individuals and 85 institutions that generously donated almost $2.3 million to TMAF’s many initiatives in 2017.

With your tax-deductible gifts, the TMA Foundation awarded nearly $1 million in grants to programs that helped send minority students to medical school, helped physicians set up flu shot clinics, offered free bicycle helmets to children, and helped physicians walk with members of their community (Photo above). You also backed TMA’s Disaster Relief Program, which provided assistance to practices devastated by Hurricane Harvey. 

You can read all about how the foundation builds and funds better health in the 2017 TMAF Annual Report. (It’s a quick read with plenty of links for expanded content if you want to learn more.)

This work is only possible thanks to the generous philanthropic and volunteer support of physicians, alliance and medical student members, and their business and community partners.

To ensure more Texans are helped by physician-led programs, donate today to your favorite initiative or to the greatest need.
