What is now The Medical Benevolent Fund Society of Ireland (MBFS) was founded in 1842 in the Royal College of Surgeons by Dr. William Kingsley and Dr Robert Graves to help support the doctors and their families. Its aim was to financially assist doctors resident in Ireland and their families including non-adult children. The generations of doctors involved in the society since then have kept to its original objective.
Our aim is that no doctor or their family resident in Ireland will suffer the consequences of severe financial pressure. Since 1842, we have provided financial assistance to over 1,000 doctors and their families. In 2014 grants totaling €100,000 were made to 20 doctors.
With your help we can continue to financially assist doctors when they need it most.
