Fundraising Priorities and Programs Supported


Due to generous funding in 2016, the Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine (FAFM) is thrilled to announce that the foundation has successfully met its donation requirements for several of its fundraising priorities. Thanks to ongoing support from partners like Scotiabank and other corporate, foundation, and individual gifts, the FAFM is happy to report that the Indigenous Medical Student Scholarship, Mental Health and Addiction initiatives, and Family Medicine Leadership and Advocacy are now fully funded.

Moving forward, the FAFM will implement a more streamlined fundraising approach, allowing the foundation to focus its greatest support on priority awards and initiatives.

By donating to the foundation, you are supporting family physicians in the pursuit of education, research, and service through philanthropy!
