FMEC Legacy Campaign. The Board of Trustees of the FMEC has created the Legacy Campaign to ensure the future success of FMEC. And they invite you to join them in making a gift to this important effort. Our vision has always been expansive and consistent. We believe that Family Medicine can improve the health of our nation and that by expanding the availability of family physicians and facilitating the remarkable leadership of Family Medicine physicians, we will improve the health of this nation.

Dr. Stacy Potts, a Past President of the FMEC, challenged us with a $100,000 gift. The first $100,000 raised will be matched to start the Legacy Fund for a total of $200,000.We will continue to campaign for three more years to raise a total of $500,000. Further, the Legacy Campaign is being undertaken in honor of the remarkable work Laurence Bauer, MSW, MEd has accomplished through the FMEC. He is our founder, and we as donors and Board Members commit to sustain the Legacy of FMEC.

The Legacy Campaign will offer donors the option of designating the fund in which their contribution will be placed. Donors can expect exemplary stewardship and will be regularly (at least on an annual basis) updated on the utilization of the funds raised. Here is a description of the focus areas:

  • The Operational Growth Fund-This fund will be used to grow the infrastructure of the FMEC. This fund will be used to invest in program development, membership growth and marketing.
  • The Strategic Reserve Fund-This fund is intended to provide support for the long-term survival of the organization. This fund shall be segregated. The interest from the Strategic Reserve Fund may be allocated to the FMEC operating account on an annual basis.
  • FMEC Greatest Need-This fund will be allocated at the discretion of the Board to meet the needs of the organization.

Thank you. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we invite you to join us in making an investment in the future of the Family Medicine Education Consortium. Our commitment to you is that we will ensure that FMEC continues its robust work to develop a primary care-driven system in our nation. With your support, there will be more Family Physicians providing transformative primary care and better health in your community and our country.
