OCMS Community Foundation
The Oklahoma County Medical Society Community Foundation has been helping to improve the lives of our citizens since 1966. Its mission is to fund projects that improve or safeguard the health of our citizens and the community as a whole. For more information on any of these programs, please call (405) 702-0500.
Medical Student Scholarship
In 2011, OCMS created the OCMS Community Foundation Medical Student Scholarship to help medical students pay tuition. Applications go out in the fall through the OU School of Medicine and scholarship(s) are awarded in the spring.
Each summer, OCMS members donate to a special fund that helps support a variety of non-profit health-related organizations in Oklahoma County. Board members include OCMS members and community members. Previous recipients of funding include the Health Alliance for the Uninsured, Schools for Healthy Lifestyles, Hearts for Healing, Infant Crisis Services, the C.A.R.E. Center, and Special Care.
One of our more popular fundraisers is Operation Santa, which has been running for more than 20 years. Each fall OCMS members have the opportunity to help provide Christmas gifts to needy children and their families. Over the years, Operation Santa has provided Christmas memories for numerous children and their families.
