Your Support Makes a Difference

The MMAF provides funds to match those made available through the Minnesota Department of Health-Office of Rural Health and Primary Care (ORHPC).

Thanks to your generous support, the MMAF and ORHPC have collaborated to assist Dr. Thieman and five other young physicians begin their practices in medically underserved rural and urban communities throughout Minnesota.

Your support matters!

Giving to the MMA Foundation carries personal meaning for every contributor. Whether you’re “paying back”, “paying it forward”, or just trying to make a difference, your gift creates a special connection between you and those whose lives are better thanks to your support.

Your gift today puts you among this committed group who, through their work and by their giving, are improving the health of Minnesotans every day.

Wise Planning helps, too.

Planning your support helps your gift go farther today and in the future. Gift planning can help you ensure that your loved ones are cared for, secure your life income, support the causes you care about, and reduce tax liability for you and your heirs. Making an estate gift to the MMA Foundation gives you membership in the MMA Foundation Legacy Society.  It’s a way for even those of us with limited means to leave a legacy that will continue to make a difference long into the future.
  • Dr. Stuart Hanson says “I would not have had the medical career I did without the help of many people” “Now it’s my turn …. I’m glad I did it!” Find out why
  • Dr. Robert Christensen says "The priorities of getting help—and giving back—go back a long way." Read more about his journey.

If you are like most people, the easiest way to accomplish your charitable goals is by making a charitable bequest through your will, or by naming your preferred charities as beneficiaries of a bank account, retirement account or life insurance policy. Sample charitable bequest language is available at Leave A Legacy.
