Charitable Donation Request Application
2018 Donation Making Process
Founded in 1989, the CSMS Charitable Trust enables CSMS physician members to contribute to organizations fighting illness, domestic violence, poverty, and homelessness in Connecticut. A 501(c)3, the Charitable Trust is funded exclusively by voluntary contributions from Connecticut physicians and through the CSMS Biondino Golf Classic. Since its inception, the CSMS Charitable Trust has donated more than $500,000 to local nonprofits.
Donations will be given to nonprofit, 501(c)3 organizations that provide services to combat hunger, homelessness, domestic violence, and/or support a particular illness. Click here to see past recipients. If you have previously been granted funds this does not disqualify you from future donations.
