Types of Donations
- Annual gifts: This type of donation benefits the programs we work to support every year, including our public health initiatives that fund free health care clinics and the awards and grants that benefit medical students.
- Recurring gifts: These are donations that you indicate you would like to recur on a schedule, such as quarterly, monthly, bi-annually or on a schedule of your choice. These recurring, scheduled gifts provide on-going support for our programs and allow our initiatives to grow over time.
- Endowment gifts: Endowment gifts provide the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy through support of an endowment fund. A gift to an endowment is invested and the return on this investment supports AMA foundation programs and initiatives. The investment of the remaining returns allows the fund to continue to grow in perpetuity and ensures its value for future generations.
The AMA Foundation has a formal gift acceptance policy, which is used in evaluating all contributions.
The policy governs the acceptance of all gifts to the foundation and provides guidance to prospective donors and their advisors when making gifts to the foundation. When warranted, the AMA Foundation Gift Acceptance Committee will review certain gifts before determining whether the gift can be accepted. To request a copy of the AMA Foundation’s Gift Acceptance Policy, please please send an email to [email protected] or call (312) 464-5852.
