Donations made to the KCMS Community Foundation can be directed in several ways. Let us know if you have a special designation for your donation:
The Underrepresented Minority in Medicine Scholars Award (URM):
Currently, the Society Community Foundation is offering scholarships to support URM medical students. The Society Community Foundation acknowledges the historical and enduring effects of racism against Black and Indigenous people as well as other People of Color in our society. We acknowledge the unique structural challenges that URMs face during medical training and throughout their careers. The Medical Society believes that diversity and inclusion in medicine remain critical to improving health care for all.
GENERAL FUND DONATIONS:
Education: The Community Foundation recognizes the extraordinary financial needs of medical students. In response to the financial shortcomings faced by a majority of medical students, the Society’s Community Foundation is planning on issuing several scholarships each year.
Community: The Community Program will seek opportunities to promote civic responsibility through community charitable gifts, development, outreach, and volunteerism.
History: Preserving and maintaining the rich history of medicine and public health in King County through education, special programs will continue to be a priority for the Community Foundation.
Matching Gifts, Workplace, and Employee Giving
PLEASE CHECK, your employer may match your gift to King County Medical Society’s Community Foundation.
