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 (managed by MAOA) can be done in the following ways*:


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.

*Please note - 

  • Donate online: up to $1,000 max 
  • Donation by check: any amount, please include pledge form with your check
  • Donate through OREF:  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.

THANK YOU for your continued support of Mid-America Orthopaedic Association!
