As a result of the generous support from our donors, the Foundation awarded nearly $1,000,000 in 2020 to support medical students, physicians and community health care organizations when they needed it most. This included:
$315,000 to support community health organizations in the prevention and education of hypertension and type-II diabetes
The reallocation of $250,000 to directly support our Community Health Partner’s efforts to combat COVID-19
$665,551 to support Medical Education and Leadership, including 28 Physicians of Tomorrow Scholarships to medical students who demonstrated academic excellence and financial need
A year-long Leadership Development Institute for rising final-year medical students which includes formal mentorship with members of this House
Our corporate donors allow us to expand our program portfolio. Corporate donors may be eligible to participate in our Corporate Roundtable Program. For more information visit our Corporate Donors page.
A Qualified Charitable Distribution is an excellent way to support the AMA Foundation and receive tax benefits in return. As you plan your donations for this year, consider using your IRA account to make the most of your charitable giving. You receive a tax benefit even if you take the standard deduction!
