Who We Are

The OAFP Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians. Its mission is to cultivate career choice in the specialty of family medicine. The Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization and supports programs and activities that build a strong family medicine workforce for Ohio each year.

All of the Foundation’s efforts are made possible through the donations of family physicians, corporate partners, OAFP regional chapters, and others who provide voluntary financial support for the Foundation. It also receives support from the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation and the AAFP Foundation Family Medicine Philanthropic Consortium. The Foundation regularly communicates with OAFP members to provide information on programs and scholarship opportunities.

The People Behind the Mission

The Foundation’s Board of Trustees and staff members work hard to ensure that the organization creates and supports programs that advance the values of family medicine and help improve the health of Ohioans.
