Give Back

Research & Education Endowment Fund

In 1986 SMA established an Educational Endowment Fund to provide funding for scholarships, research projects and other programs supporting the educational purposes of the Association.

In December 1987, SMA launched a Planned Giving Program incorporating the existing Endowment Fund with several other options for charitable giving.

Donors may target gifts for scholarships, lectureships or special educational programs through gifts from various means including bequests, life insurance, real estate, or securities. With any gift, donors may establish memorials for deceased loved ones or recognition for a colleague.

Purposes of the Fund are to provide an investment in the future of medical and health care delivery; to stimulate interest in conducting research; to provide financial aid to deserving medical students; to initiate a professional career development relationship with SMA; and to recognize or memorialize donors and their designees.

If you have questions about the Research and Education Endowment Fund, please call the Southern Medical Association at 800-423-4992.

Just as you have had others to support and encourage your dreams, take the opportunity now to help make an aspiring physician’s dream a reality.

The Society of 1906 was approved in 1990 in Nashville, TN, to recognize major contributors to the Research and Education Endowment Fund.

SMA physicians may become members of the Society of 1906 in several ways:

* A one-time contribution of $5,000.  * An initial pledge of $1,000 with 4 annual payments of $1000 each, totaling $5,000.  * A bequest of $20,000.

The twenty-seven Charter Members of The Society of 1906 were honored at the SMA’s 85th Annual Scientific Assembly in Atlanta in November of 1991. Charter Members attended the first annual black-tie reception and were given a beautiful medallion representing their commitment to the goals of SMA’s Research and Education Endowment Fund.
