The HOPE Fund is a physician-driven, annual giving program designed to engage NMMC

physicians in supporting important health needs and to direct charitable assistance to health causes and programs that are especially significant to us as NMMC medical staff members.

Physicians’ tax deductible donations to Health Care Foundation of North Mississippi (HCF) for the HOPE fund are distributed annually with one-half of all donations awarded for NMMC patient care needs as directed by a panel of fellow physician donors. The remaining portion will support additional health improvement programs of greatest need.



Health Care Foundation will recognize all HOPE Fund physician donors of $1000 or more at hospital recognition centers, events and on the HCF website. Physicians whose cumulative gifts to the Foundation exceed $25,000 are also recognized at those areas as members of the Dr. P.K. Thomas Jr. Society.

In Addition, to recognition opportunities:
• Donations are tax-deductible for income tax purposes
• Physician advisory group helps direct gifts to important patient care needs.
• Physician donors will receive exclusive invitations to HCF programs and events.
