Founded in 1958, the MMA's charitable foundation changed its name in 2007 to become the Minnesota Medical Association Foundation.
Over the years, the MMA Foundation focused primarily on supporting the next generation of physicians with student loans. Other activities responded to current needs and included health education programs, support for physicians, and disaster relief.
The 2006 strategic plan affirmed the direction of the foundation and refined its focus. Today, the foundation fulfills its mission by providing scholarships for medical students and working to improve access to high-quality health care in rural and urban areas throughout Minnesota.
