Medical College of Georgia Foundation
Established in 1954, the mission of the not-for-profit Medical College of Georgia Foundation is to improve the quality of life of the people of Georgia, the nation, and the world by supporting the advancement of education, research, and patient care at the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Health Sciences University.
The Foundation was incorporated in 1954 as a not-for-profit corporation to acquire and hold property and money to improve and maintain the high standards of instruction at the Medical College of Georgia, to create and maintain fellowships for the study of medicine and related disciplines, to create and maintain facilities for research in medical science by both faculty and students and to award scholarships and in other ways assist MCG students.
The Foundation accepts donations to help carry out its charitable purpose to exclusively support the education, research and clinical care missions of MCG. To accomplish this, there are four categories of established accounts and funds:
- Designated Endowment Funds
- General Endowment Funds
- Designated Expendable Accounts
- Life Income Funds
The Foundation's principle responsibility is to honor donor intent. The foundation has a fiduciary responsibility to ensure that donor wishes are strictly observed and that gifts are used only for the purpose(s) stated by the donor. The Foundation will be accountable to the donor in ensuring that MCG has spent their funds in a prudent manner consistent with their intentions.
The Medical College of Georgia Foundation needs your help in supporting student scholarships and fellowships, and to give faculty and researchers the tools to conduct groundbreaking research in health sciences and medicine. Your gifts will make a remarkable impact on the lives of the many people to whom MCG provides care.
