MAOA Education and Research Fund

The Mid-America Orthopaedic Association supports Classic Speakers, a Presidential Guest Speaker, Multipurpose Resident Grants, Traveling Fellowships, Physician in Training Awards, Poster Awards, and Education Grants on an annual basis.  These awards have been funded in large part by the MAOA Education and Research Fund. In order for these activities to continue, we would like to ask for your support, as corporate contributions have not been enough to fully fund these expenses.

Donations to the MAOA Education and Research Fund can be done in the following ways:
MAOA Education and Research Fund (managed by MAOA):

  • Direct donations (any amount) to the MAOA Education and Research Fund. If you wish to donate by check, click here for a MAOA pledge form to include with your check payment.  Donations can be sent to:  
    Mid-America Orthopaedic Association
    300 Third Avenue, S.E., #405
    Rochester, MN 55905

  • Direct online donations to MAOA (up to $1,000 max can be donated online) can be done by clicking here.  Donations over $1,000 should be paid by check and sent to the MAOA office (address above).  Paying by check reduces the amount MAOA pays in credit card service charges; the entire amount of your donation is available for educational support.

  • Designate a portion of your contribution to OREF to the MAOA Education and Research Fund. For gifts of $1,000 or more (Order of Merit), $500 (or more if the total gift exceeds $1,000) can be designated to MAOA. In so doing, you will be receiving recognition for your donation by both OREF and MAOA.  Click here to designate a portion of your contribution to OREF to the MAOA Education and Research Fund.

Please consider donating an amount, which is comfortable for you, recognizing that each member’s ability to contribute, and financial obligations vary. The IRS has approved our application for exemption for this Fund under code section 501(c)(3), and contributions, therefore, are tax deductible.

We would be grateful for your support.
