Spokane County Medical Society Foundation

The Spokane County Medical Society’s Board of Trustees established the Spokane County Medical Society Foundation (SCMSF) in 1996 to identify, promote, receive and manage projects that provide leadership in scientific research, education, medical economics, public health, public interest and healthcare. The Foundation continues today to be focused on developing and operating programs that serve the health needs of our community.

Its mission of “promoting and supporting the development of future physician and physician assistant leaders within our community, and identifying and funding important and innovative projects that advance the health of our community” is driven and preserved by the physician and physician assistant members of the Spokane County Medical Society. Designated as a charitable organization, it has been involved in community projects from providing funding for Christ Clinic, removing gang tattoos, increasing childhood immunizations, supporting a community health clinic, physician education (BMI), support for the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, the Hot Spotters Group and Community Court, Project Access, and the Physician Wellness Program.
