TMA Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) organization, is the philanthropic arm of TMA. It is the only philanthropy in Texas dedicated to the charitable concerns of all physicians. TMAF’s mission is to "fund initiatives with the power to help physicians create a healthier future for all Texans." TMA projects funded by TMAF are selected on their ability to target urgent health needs affecting a large segment of the state's residents with results that can be measured. Projects often involve public-private collaborations, which maximize the effectiveness of programs and enable efforts to be tailored to meet local needs. Learn more about TMA Foundation.
After careful consideration of the evolving COVID-19 situation in Texas, with input from local and state health officials and TMA’s Coronavirus Task Force, the Texas Medical Association Board of Trustees has determined that TexMed 2020 will not take place in Fort Worth on May 1-2. The health and safety of TMA and TMA Alliance members and all donors is paramount.
TMAF’s 27th annual gala also will not take place. The Foundation Board and staff are working on alternative solutions (e.g. an online auction!) to ensure TMA’s outstanding health, science and education initiatives are supported and additional ways to express our deep appreciation to all who are supporting this gala through sponsorships, ticket purchases and auction donations.
TMAF will email every sponsor and ticket holder within the next week or two with more updates. Thank you for your understanding.
With more than $540,000 in grants from TMA Foundation, TMA’s 2020 community outreach programs provide members opportunities to give back to their community through health improvement and education activities. Learn more and find resources for your practice. Other grant-funded initiatives build the pipeline of future physicians through science education and medical student scholarships. Gifts to TMAF are tax-deductible.
TMA Foundation is qualified to accept “qualified charitable distributions” from an IRA. If you’re 70 and 1/2 or older, an IRA “qualified charitable distribution” or QCD enables you to support the work of TMAF without tapping into other income you need for daily and monthly needs. It also can help you starting at age 72 when you must take your required minimum distribution because QCDs of up to $100,000 in a year may be excluded from taxable income. Read more about the NEW law and how you and TMAF can benefit from this method of donating.
Outstanding speakers and critical education for physicians to lead the future of medicine will reach new heights thanks 33 donors whose generous gifts have established The Louis J. Goodman Lectureship on Leadership in Medicine. The lectureship honors Louis J. Goodman, PhD, who served as CEO and executive vice president of TMA and recently retired.
TMAF is pleased to announce two new scholarship funds established by Houston pathologist Roberto J. Bayardo, MD, in memory of his wife, Agniela (Annie). Dr. Bayardo’s generous gifts enable county medical societies that have medical student scholarship programs to apply to the foundation for one matching scholarship from each fund.
