The Mecklenburg Medical Alliance and Endowment (MMAE) began in 1934 as an organization for physicians’ spouses who sought fellowship and involvement in community service. Today, MMAE welcomes anyone who supports its mission of advocating for a healthier Charlotte Mecklenburg community.
MMAE members are committed to the mission of building a healthier community.
MMAE operates exclusively through committee work of members who donate their time, talent and resources.
Standing Committees include:
Board of Directors
Planning and Development
Grants and Disbursements
MMAE’s goals consist of engaging its members in programs and projects that make a meaningful impact on the community, maintaining fiscal responsibility and establishing relevance.
MMAE’s impact on the community is measured through grants given to organizations that report excellent success rates and outcomes. All funds raised go directly to organizations that support the MMAE mission.
