The Officers and the Executive Committee of the Knoxville Academy of Medicine Alliance established a fund, known as the Knoxville Academy of Medicine Alliance Philanthropic Fund, in May 1981. It receives tax-deductible contributions for the qualifying projects of the fund and for sponsoring activities to raise monies to be used exclusively for charitable, scientific, safety, and literary or educational purposes. The fund is directed by the Philanthropic Board of Managers. KAMA raises money through several annual fundraisers including FASHIONDRAMA, DOC ROCK, GALA, and HOLIDAY SHARING CARD.
The money raised is placed into the KAMA Philanthropic Fund and distributed as grants to local health-related organizations and as scholarships to medical and nursing schools.
To make a donation directly to KAMA, please send your check payable to KAMA Philanthropic Fund to: KAMA Philanthropic Treasurer, PO Box 10551, Knoxville, Tennessee 37339-0551.
