Research & Education - SMA Giving Back

Donate to the 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 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.


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.

At your request, donations can be made in honor or memory of an individual, and SMA will send a card notifying the honoree.

If you wish to honor someone with your donation, please include the following at checkout in the box entitled "Additional Information":

  • This donation is made "in honor of" or "in memory of"
  • The full name of person being honored
  • The full name of the card recipient
  • The address of the card recipient

Ways to Give to the Fund Gifts can be made in numerous ways, each of which provides the Endowment Fund with the support it needs while enabling you to realize immediate tax savings.

• Cash • Life Insurance Policy • Securities • Bequest • Gift Annuity • Other Planned Giving Options
