TMA Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization committed to connecting the charitable concerns of physicians with the people of Texas.
TMAF’s 31st annual gala, Wonderland, will feature designs and décor inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic story Alice in Wonderland as well as highlight the visionary work Texas physicians have done for decades to imagine a healthier Texas. Guests will be entertained and amazed in an exaggerated dream world created by our whimsical atmosphere. Attire will be tea party or business casual.
We’re expecting more than 500 physicians, their spouses and leaders in business and the community to join us for an evening of dinner, dancing, and a powerful program with a live auction and Make-A-Difference benefiting TMA’s Hard Hats for Little Heads.
TMAF welcomes physician leaders from Dallas to co-chair TMA Foundation’s 31st annual gala, Wonderland, on Friday, May 3: Drs. Donna Casey and Gary Weinstein, Drs. Rainer and Anita Khetan, and Drs. Roger Khetan and Thomas Heil.
This season, consider taking a Texas two-step approach to gift-giving by making a charitable donation through the Texas Medical Association Foundation (TMAF) Holiday Tribute Program.
For decades, TMAF has supported critical health care initiatives and science and education programs in Texas, impacting tens of thousands of Texans. Help continue this strong tradition of creating healthier communities in the Lone Star State. Honor your friends, colleagues, and family members by making a charitable donation in their name.
One gift is a great way to check two items off your holiday list. You’ll support your favorite TMA outreach program, and when you donate in someone’s name, the foundation will send your honoree a holiday card announcing your gift.
You can donate online or call (800) 880-1300, ext. 1663. Make your donation by Dec. 15, to ensure holiday card delivery before Dec. 25. Gifts made to TMAF on or before Dec. 31 (or postmarked no later than Dec. 31) are eligible for 2023 tax benefits according to federal law.
Two Houston physicians, one Dallas physician, an Austin consultant, and a Corpus Christi TMA Alliance member serve as officers on the TMA Foundation Board of Trustees.
