About the Foundation

The Medical Society of Northern Virginia Foundation is a 501(c)(3) philanthropic organization. Over the years, the MSNVA Foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars, raised primarily from its physician members, to charities involved with the provision of care to children; to send medical/surgical teams to hospitals in third world countries; and generally to support the northern Virginia community.

Mission Statement

The MSNVA Foundation is dedicated to the advancement of medicine and patient care, by promoting physician-led, community-based projects to improve public health.


MSNVA would like to thank SunTrust for its $10,000 contribution to support the MSNVA Foundation programs.


To financially assist deserving medical students enrolled in a Virginia medical school, the MSNVA Scholarship program was re-established in 2010, it’s supported by fundraising events and general contributions from MSNVA members.  In 2011, the MSNVA Foundation rewarded its first scholarships.
