Creating a gift for the American Osteopathic Foundation in your will or by beneficiary designation is a great way to invest in the future of Osteopathic medicine today, and make a lasting difference for the students, physicians, educators, and researchers tomorrow.

How You Can Benefit

The Osteopathic profession has provided a good living for me. I feel it’s my duty to give back, and I can think of no better way to do it than by providing scholarships to deserving students.

Choosing the option that's right for you

Create a bequest in your will or trust. This costs you nothing now and can be made at any age or income level. Your bequest may be made for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your total estate, or the residual amount (after expenses have been paid).

Make a gift by beneficiary designation. Name the AOF a beneficiary of any of these types of accounts, and you can help the AOF for years to come:

As with any planned gift, please consult with your attorney and/or tax advisor before making any decision.

Make-A-Will Month: Protecting what matters most

We're partnering with FreeWill this August to help you create a will in just 20 minutes! Additionally, you can designate beneficiaries for non-probate assets such as an IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, or any other assets not covered by your will. While there, you can also create a legacy to invest in the future of osteopathic medicine, at no cost today.

The video below outlines how making a will can protect all you love:
