The Southeast Alabama Medical Center Foundation is dedicated to philanthropic pursuits that will enhance and sustain quality healthcare and community wellness initiatives throughout our region. In an effort to address multiple objectives, the Foundation’s Board of Trustees embarked on a $6.6 million dollar capital campaign in Fall 2011 that included a $4.1 million dollar earmark for the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM).
Through the early and generous gifts of some 200 individuals and businesses in our community, the Foundation has reached 63% of the goal for the college of medicine. To date, more than $2.5 million dollars in private funds has been given in support of ACOM and will be used to enhance the medical training experience and help underwrite new programs that will benefit the future needs of the community.

More than 100 fellow art patrons and benefactors attended a unique arts acquisition benefit for the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine and Southeast Alabama Medical Center on June 20, 2013, at The Depot off Main. The SAMC Foundation in cooperation with the Wiregrass Museum of Art presented 63 original works created by 33 artists from around the Southeast. The pieces included oils, watercolors, mosaics, sculptures and outdoor installations.
The evening resulted in 17 sponsored pieces of art totaling $19,395 to be placed at ACOM. Sponsored pieces will be acknowledged with a recognition placard featuring the benefactor and artist. The Foundation acquired an additional 12 works of art valued at more than $50,000 to complete the initial phase of the acquisition program. All acquired works are available for sponsorship.
Special thanks to participating artists, museum representatives Elaine Johnson, Dana-Marie Lemmer, Joe Sette, Tonye Frith, and Jon Smith, and SAMC Foundation volunteers Glen Herndon, John Reeves, Roger Burchett, David Dennis, Karen Loftin, Sue Esslinger, Rufus Davis, Bill Barnes, Dawn Gray and Sarah Senn. Appreciation is also extended to Depot owner David Parker for making the venue available.
