foundation history

The Southwestern Medical Clinic Foundation was created in 1995 as a non-profit organization with the express mission to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom through gathering and disbursing resources for medical related Christian missions.  Although there are many worthy and exciting opportunities for giving, the Southwestern Medical Foundation seeks to gather support for the types of programs mentioned below.

Medical Education Projects:
  Educational loan repayment programs are available to potential career missionaries who would otherwise be unable to fulfill their dream of full time service.

Fellowship Grants:  The Foundation seeks to encourage future medical missionaries by providing grants to medical students, residents, or fellows interested in gaining clinical experience in the missions setting.

Short Term Projects: The foundation facilitates both group and individual opportunities to serve various mission fields.  Group projects have proved valuable to the people served as well as providing:

  • Spiritual enrichment
  • Team-building
  • Family bonding opportunities. One of our projects was assisting with medical missions in areas impacted by Hurricane Katrina.

Large and Small Capital Needs Projects:  Funding is facilitated when requests for large or small capital expenditures are received. Some examples are

  • Entire hospital wings
  • Surgery suites
  • High tech equipment
  • Medicine procurement
  • Transportation vehicles

Many more

Christian Support Ministries:  Its mission is to recruit, train and support healthcare providers and Christian lay volunteers who minister, free of charge and in confidence, to the whole person in the healthcare environment. They work closely with the physicians, nurses and allied health professionals to provide spiritual and emotional support to the physically ill.

General Fund Grants: The Foundation seeks to be a conduit for like-minded Christian individuals or groups who wish to support specific large and small capital projects or just want to contribute to the other involvements of the Foundation, such as in Christian Family camps, Child Evangelism, Chaplaincy programs, Pregnancy Care, or the Christian Medical and Dental Association endeavors.

We appreciate your gifts and donations in support of our work through the Southwestern Medical Clinic Foundation.
