The Kent County Medical Society Alliance Foundation, a 501(c)3, has been the charitable arm of the Alliance since 1997. The philanthropic focus of the Alliance Foundation is health related needs in the community with an emphasis regarding issues affecting families. Since 1990, the Alliance Foundation’s Dose of Generosity Charity Event (formerly known as the Charity Ball) has provided over $1.25 million to help support more than 26 charities in the greater Kent County area. In addition to this fundraising event, the Alliance Foundation awards mini-grants to local charities.
The Alliance Foundation holds several events throughout the year to fund mini grant requests. Our Dose of Generosity Charity Event primarily supports two organizations selected each year. Our next Dose of Generosity Event will be held on March 3, 2018.
