By physicians for physicians

The Physicians’ Legacy Foundation is a registered charity administered by the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association and overseen by physicians. Each year, the generosity of our donors provides scholarships and financial assistance to medical students attending Memorial University. Every dollar you give goes directly to our scholarships.


Why you should donate

Your generous contributions support scholarships that recognize academic achievement, leadership qualities and advocacy. Most importantly, your donation helps ensure that medical education is accessible to deserving students regardless of their financial means.

A charity that matters to physicians

The Physicians’ Legacy Foundation is your opportunity to give back to your profession and your community by investing in the doctors of tomorrow. You may donate at any time of the year. The simplest way for practicing physicians to give is when you renew your NLMA membership. Look for the option to donate on your annual membership invoice.
