Welcome To The Diebel Legacy Fund

Our Fund Mission:

 "The mission of the Diebel Legacy Fund (DLF) is to promote and guide the development of medical students into physicians who are acutely aware of the Good Samaritan concept and the many needs of the less fortunate in our society.  This is accomplished through an innovative program developed by the DLF in conjunction with the University of Central Florida College of Medicine in the form of student-run, attending-physician supervised clinics.  Additionally, is to support carefully selected local organizations dedicated to helping those in need through providing both acute and ongoing care to the medically under-served in Central Florida.


The vision of The Diebel Legacy Fund is a community where Good Samaritan acts are the rule, rather than the exception.

The mission of the Diebel Legacy fund is to recognize, honor and perpetuate the concept of the Good Samaritan and to assist in the development of future physicians who share this passion.
