Columbus Medical Association Foundation

Our Mission:
The Columbus Medical Association Foundation (CMAF), through the governance and oversight of its board of physicians and other experts, effects change within specific priority areas to improve the health of the residents of Central Ohio.

As a physicians and other health experts, you’ve accepted a call to serve the needs of the central Ohio community. You give your best to your practice, your patients and your people – but sometimes you wonder if it’s really enough.

You wish you could do more. Well, what if you could?
What if there were a way for you to increase your impact by sharing time, talent and treasure with an organization that’s trusted by hundreds of other Columbus medical professionals – and still impact the causes you care about most?

When you partner with the Columbus Medical Association Foundation, you can!
As the philanthropic organization of the Columbus Medical Association, the CMA Foundation is part of a vibrant community created by physicians for physicians. We work with you to solve and fund health, and wellness issues impacting local physicians and the central Ohio community.

How do we do it? Together. Because without you, we wouldn’t be us.
Together, we make a measurable impact by funding the community’s most significant healthcare needs:
• Putting patients first in the healthcare delivery
• Limited access and clinical services to uninsured and under-insured populations
• Disaster preparedness and coordination of trauma and emergency care resources
• Exposing diverse youth to careers in medicine
• Educating physicians to lead and thrive
We are proud that programming that makes a difference for these needs is closely connected with the Columbus Medical Association affiliates (PLA, COTS, PCC) and their partners.

But we’re more than a charitable organization – we’re the place where healthy ideas start.
Our community’s finest health and wellness programs start in the CMA Foundation – and they originate from CMA physician partners just like you.
• If you have an impact idea, but need funding...
• If you have funding, but need an impact idea...
• If you have an impact idea and funding but need a helping hand...
...the CMA Foundation is the place where healthy ideas start.

What happens when physicians give back with time, talent and treasure?
We create pathways to help physicians, individuals and families give back through healthy ideas, passion projects and funding. Together, we make the heart of Ohio healthier.
