What is CMF?

Created by physicians and for physicians, the Canadian Medical Foundation is a registered Canadian charitable organization focused on helping Canadian physicians realize their philanthropic goals, whether through donations, investments and other planned gifts, or volunteerism. Health care is a demanding profession, and physicians may not have a lot of time to research how they can do more good in the world, while also perhaps benefitting from a tax savings. We make it easy by providing information and options for investing, donating or volunteering.
