Your gift to the Society will make it possible for SGIM to continue to support you and our members and to serve our mission. We are pleased to provide a new option for supporting our programs--we recognize that members and other stakeholders may have interest in specific topic areas and this allows you to donate directly to these initiatives. SGIM reserves the right to use donations for related projects serving the audience or topic areas selected.
We invite you to help Build On Our Foundation with our 2016 Capital Campaign. Through the generosity of our members, we were able to buy our national office space, giving us a permanent home. We now have the exclusive opportunity to purchase the small office condo adjacent to our current national office space. This will give us additional Room to Grow as our office continues to serve its members and looks to expand in the future.
Thank you for considering this valuable contribution.

Regional Training Fund
Your donation of $25 or more will be used to offset the attendance, registration, and content submission costs of trainees within each of the seven SGIM Regions. These funds will be used to subsidize the reduced fees charged to students and residents within each region, and will enhance the ability of each Region to attract and engage with new medical student members. Once enough money is raised and held in reserve, a scholarship will be created for selected student awardees within each Region to help partially defray the cost for them to attend the national meeting that year. Donations will be managed by the Board of Regional Leaders and the SGIM staff and will be apportioned to the individual Regions on the basis of trainee volume at each meeting in the prior year.
Support will help sustain the DPG, an annual program which includes a renowned geriatrician giving a plenary address, moderating geriatrics abstract sessions, leading a walking tour of geriatrics posters, meeting with the geriatrics interest group, and facilitating career mentoring/meet-the-professor sessions at the SGIM Annual Meeting.
Your support of the Women and Medicine Task Force will sustain 1) the Distinguished Professorship, an annual program which includes a plenary address from a national leader in women’s health, a moderated women’s health abstract session, and walking tour of a women’s health poster session; 2) the Career Advising Program (CAP) , a large-scale mentoring program to support the advancement of junior women faculty seeking academic promotion; and 3) the Women’s Health Awards, which promote high quality academic content related to women’s health at the national meeting.
Facilitates the conduct of theoretically sound and actionable health disparities research by developing a toolkit of existing measures that assess the root causes of racial/ethnic disparities into a single document which can be easily accessed by researchers within and outside SGIM.
