Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants of up to $3,000 and grants of up to $7,500 to Texas medical student chapters, county medical societies, and alliance chapters for programs and projects that promote the health and well-being of local communities. Funding is intended to support initiatives and activities that reflect the Foundation's interest in public health, medical education, and science, and its goal of helping physicians create a healthier future for all Texans.

Initiatives supported by TMAF reflect TMA’s current population health, science, medical education, and quality of care priorities. In addition, they reflect many of TMAF’s operating principles: 

  • Stimulate partnerships with others who share the vision and purposes of the Texas Medical Association in matters of public health;
  • Support primarily short-term, high-impact, high-visibility programs;
  • Seek development of public health programs by providing funds for planning;
  • Multiply funding effectiveness by joining with other interested organizations and agencies with common program objectives; and
  • Make maximal use of volunteer services.
