Why Donate to the Catholic Medical Association (CMA)?
The CMA relies on generous donors, funders, and corporate sponsors to build successful programs to serve the entire Catholic community (both in the United States and abroad) through education, advocacy, and service.
Medical students are particularly close to the hearts of CMA members and our donors. CMA supports medical students through a variety of means (including events like the Medical Student Boot Camp) to help keep their faith strong as they train to enter the medical profession.
Donations also help extend our advocacy and educational work within the Church, including the Vatican, the U.S. bishops, diocesan programs, and national and local lay apostolates.
2013-2014 Annual Appeal
Through the CMA's 2013-2014 Annual Appeal -- "Changing Lives; Bringing Light" -- we hope to generate the funds we need to sustain and improve the major programs by which we form medical students, serve the Church, and witness to the culture of life. There are 3 major areas of focus in the 2013-2014 Annual Appeal:
- Medical Student Scholarship & Development Fund (MSSDF). This fund supports our Student Section and scholarships to bring students to CMA’s annual conference. The flagship program of the MSSDF is the Annual Medical Student Boot Camp.
- Evangelization and Education Fund. This fund underwrites the personnel and projects to provide excellent educational resources and to evangelize our culture.
- Endowment Fund. This fund helps to ensure the long-term financial stability of the CMA by providing a reserve fund for stable interest income and a cushion for specific programs and projects in case of negative economic swings.
We invite you to support the CMA by donating to one of these restricted funds or by giving an unrestricted gift which we will apply to the area of greatest need. And, if God has blessed you and you are willing and able, we invite you to join the "Pacesetter Circle" of donors with a gift of $500 or more. See the tabs on the left margin for options to donate online or to download a PDF form.
CMA is a 501c3 organization; donations are tax-deductible in the United States to the full extent of the law. If you would like to make a monthly, quarterly, or annual pledge (an automatically recurring credit card transaction) please call (484) 270-8002.
