Who We Are

Kent County Medical Society Alliance advances the well being of our county through health-related philanthropy and advocacy, and promotes camaraderie among physician families through all seasons of their lives. Our mission has benefitted members since 1932.

Alliance members represent all specialties, and all stages of medical life, from the training years through retirement.  Our membership is open to spouses/domestic partners of physicians, MD’s, DO’s, medical students, interns, residents and fellows.

The philanthropic focus of the Alliance is on health related needs in the community with an emphasis on issues affecting families. Since 1990, our annual 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 annual fundraising event, the Alliance awards mini-grants to local charities, holds a holiday party for area children in need, collects household items to assist young adults who are exiting the foster care system, donates items to local domestic crisis shelters, advocates for patients and physicians on legislative issues affecting health care, and more.
