The 1000 Club, now called the Millennium Donors (MD) 1000 Club, was created to assist pro-medicine candidates in their quest for elected office. Additional funding to help them in their efforts is required in these close races.
In the 2000 and 2002 elections, the 1000 Club made a difference in several highly contested House and Senate races in the Florida Legislature. For example, the 1000 Club played a key role in the election of Ed Homan, M.D., to the Florida House, and the re-election of Anna Cowin, a physician’s spouse, to the Florida Senate.
MD 1000 Club members pledge contributions totaling $1,000 during the course of an election cycle or two years ($1.37 per day). An initial $500 contribution to the issue advocacy organization, People for a Better Florida, is required as a condition of membership followed by a $500 contribution to a “targeted” pro-medicine candidate late in the election cycle. This second $500 contribution will be requested during the months of August through October of an election year. The MD 1000 Club members will receive an over-night letter requesting a specific amount for a designated candidate to be returned to the FMA for delivery to the candidate.
Three additional levels of membership have been added to the MD 1000 Club: those who raise or contribute $5,000 will be Silver Members; those who raise or contribute $10,000 will be Gold Members; and those who raise or contribute $25,000 or more will be Platinum Members. Typically, group practices and hospital medical staffs can contribute these larger amounts and the proceeds go to the issue advocacy organization, People for a Better Florida (PBF).
