OREF'S PARTNERSHIP WITH MAOA

MAOA Education and Research Fund

The continued ability of the MAOA to fund special speakers, traveling fellowships, multipurpose
resident grants, physician in training awards, poster awards, and resident/fellow/new in practice
orthopedist education grants to attend the annual meeting is due in large part to generous
donations by MAOA members and nonmembers to the MAOA Education & Research Fund.

Partnering with MAOA through OREF

In addition to direct gifts to MAOA, donations can be given to OREF in 2 ways to benefit MAOA:

1. Annual Campaign (Established 2011)
    Donors contributing less than $1,000 to the OREF Annual Campaign can choose to designate
    up to 50% of their gift for the benefit of the MAOA Education and Research Fund with 50%
    directed to OREF. Annual Campaign gifts are those 
made in one year and are available to be
    spent 
immediately.

2. Annual Giving - Order of Merit Recognition
    The Order of Merit is a special recognition society of OREF. In any year, a donation
    of $1,000 or more to OREF qualifies the donor for the Order of Merit. The first $500 is a gift
    to OREF to help support its programs. Any of the remaining $500 or more can be designated
    to the MAOA Education & Research Fund. Click here to designate a portion of your contribution
    to OREF to the MAOA Education and Research Fund.
