The Pierce County Medical Society Foundation was formed in 2000. The Foundation exists to raise funds to contribute to local non-profit agencies in efforts to provide assistance for those needing help in Pierce County.

The PCMS Foundation awards grant monies to Pierce County non-profit agencies that provide direct services for Pierce County citizens who are most in need. Feeding the hungry, offering clothing, shelter and protection for the most vulnerable, and providing health care for those without access are the missions of the agencies they are proud to fund.

The Foundation would not exist without the generosity of the Pierce County Medical Society membership. Contributions to the Foundation allow for local, non-profit agencies to benefit by over $20,000 collectively each year.

Each year funds are raised from the PCMS membership with the Holiday Sharing Card Project and the Annual Meeting raffle. Members generously donate to the card project and raffle knowing that 100% of net proceeds will be returned to the community through local non profit agencies that are awarded grant money.
