Greater Greensboro

Society of Medicine

History:

In March of 1984, the Greensboro branch of the Guilford County Medical Society (now known as Greater

Greensboro Society of Medicine) and its Auxiliary (now the Alliance) announced the formation of the Medical

Society/Auxiliary Endowment Fund (now Medical Society/Alliance Endowment Fund.) The Auxiliary (Alliance)

contributed $5,000, and the Medical Society contributed $10,000 in a combined capital investment of $15,000 to

create a permanent and growing endowment fund. As of March 31, 2019 the fund balance was over $400,000.

The funds shall remain in perpetuity and can be added to by any amount from any source from time to time. Gifts,

memorials, bequests, and other donations as well as monies from fundraisers would increase the original

investment. The interest from the principal would be available for grants to worthy causes in the community that

fall within a health related scope.

Objectives:

1.

To provide a permanent and growing fund in the

name of the medical community for health

related projects.

2.

To promote awareness of health related needs in

our community.

3.

To demonstrate the continued commitment of

the medical community to the betterment of

health and to enhance its health care role.

4.

To provide a vehicle for various means of

charitable giving both within and from outside

the medical community.

5.

To serve as an avenue of partnership between

the Society and the Alliance.

6.

To return a gift to our community for the many

opportunities it provides for our families.

Administration:

This Endowment Fund is invested and administered by the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro. Grants

are distributed from the annual endowment payout to support community nonprofit agencies and health related

projects as recommended by the Advisory Endowment Committee of the Medical Society and Alliance.

Contributions to this component fund of the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro are tax deductible, as

the Community Foundation is a publicly supported charity.

If you wish to apply for an Endowment Fund Grant, please contact the GGSM Director.
