Consider AAOS in Order of Merit
If you participate at the Order of Merit level in the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) annual campaign and will make your gift in December, please consider AAOS for a portion of that gift. The first $500 of an Order of Merit gift goes unrestricted to OREF to fund research and education programs, but donors may designate the rest of their gift, or any portion of it, to benefit specialty society foundations, the Orthopaedic Learning Center, the Academy or other organizations.
'Over the years, many of our members have designated part of their OREF gift to the Academy,' said Robert Bucholz, MD, AAOS president. 'We appreciate that support very much and are using it to help fund vital, innovative educational programs.'
To participate in this program, visit www.oref.org or call Ed Hoover, OREF director of annual giving, at (847) 384-4354.
