Support Your Society's Annual Mission Appeal

Leading the Way to a Healthy Delaware...TOGETHER

The Medical Society of Delaware (MSD) is a nonprofit membership organization of more than 1,300 physicians located throughout Delaware representing every specialty practice in the medical field. Our mission is to guide, serve, and support Delaware physicians, promoting the practice and profession of medicine to enhance the health of our communities.

Your tax-deductible donation to MSD’s Annual Mission Appeal will directly enable our work in areas of crucial importance to the health and wellness of our state. These include:

  • Expanding care through the Delaware Foundation for Medical Services to marginalized and uninsured patients through MSD initiatives such as Delaware’s Voluntary Initiative Program and Medication Assistance Program. Successes Include: 

    • Serving a 4% increase in VIP patients over the past year
    • Providing an additional 13% increase in pharmacy assistance to patients over the past year
    • Supporting a 90% bilingual population
    • Added additional providers to the Health Care Connection network
  • Continuing and developing educational outreach through the Delaware Medical Education Foundation, such as our Healthy Living Talks and OBVIOUS Campaign for Kids. Successes include: 

    • Supported 7 high school leaders through the APOLLO program
    • Training 25 students to increase Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills (CARS) portion of MCAT
    • Supporting 40 primary care practices with a BluePrints grant to achieve improved care coordination and care management, higher quality scores, better preventive screening, and reduced ER visits on their journey to value-based care. 
    • A planned CPR training to enhance life-saving skills

These and other efforts are critical if we are truly going to lead the way to a healthy Delaware. We can only accomplish them by working diligently together.


The 1789 Club recognizes the philanthropic investment by physicians in the future of medicine in the state of Delaware, and the part the Medical Society of Delaware will play in shaping that future. As a donor-member making a gift of at least $1,789, you will be a part of an exclusive cohort and receive invitations to V.I.P. events, be added on our 1789 Club donor wall, and receive a special 1789 Club lapel pin that is a reproduction of our Society’s original Seal. Join today and become an Ambassador for MSD’s Mission Appeal and help lead the way to a healthy Delaware! Gifts are deposited in either Delaware Foundation for Medical Services or Delaware Medical Education Foundation, by the donors choice.

Yes, I want to support MSD in leading the way to a healthy Delaware!
