Make a Donation

Loyal supporters are commended for their generosity and commitment to give back to the osteopathic profession. We appreciate those who give annually to support our mission. The AOF relies primarily on the annual generosity of members of the osteopathic medical profession to sustain our many programs. Most importantly, all donations allow individuals, foundations and affiliates to impact osteopathic medicine on a national level.


Supporting the Foundation Now and in the Future

  • Donors can give now to funds that support student scholarships, humanitarian outreach, emergency relief, or the greatest needs identified by AOF staff and its Board of Directors. Gifts can be made online or by check. For gifts of securities and other assets, please contact our development office.
  • Donors can also plan to support the AOF in the future through a planned gift. Naming the AOF as a beneficiary is a wonderful way to invest in the future of osteopathic medicine.
