AOFAS Foundation

By: AOFAS

My name is Dr. Brian Den Hartog and I'd like to tell you about the work of The Foundation, the fundraising arm of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society. The mission of The Foundation is to help the AOFAS advance research, education, and humanitarian service. With contributions from donors like you, The Foundation invests in the future of orthopaedic foot and ankle education. Foundation donations fund such programs as the Resident Scholarship Program, the Resident Review Course, the Visiting Professor Program and the Traveling Fellowship Program. All of these programs help prepare young orthopedists for careers in foot and ankle by providing unique educational opportunities and giving them access to leaders in the field. With contributions from donors like you, The Foundation expands knowledge in the field of orthopaedic foot and ankle.

The Research Grants Program provides vital start-up funding for promising foot and ankle projects. Grants of up to $20,000 are awarded annually and funding is awarded on a competitive basis based on blind review. Pilot Projects Grants of up to $5,000 each are also available to encourage young investigators, especially Residents and Fellows, to participate in research. In addition, The Foundation supports OFAR, an AOFAS project designed to collect and share data on treatment outcomes. And with contributions from donors like you, The Foundation supports humanitarian service.

An annual trip to Vietnam provides life-changing surgery for patients. Since 2002, more than 1,200 disabled children and adults have received surgical treatment and more than 2,800 patients have been seen in clinics. AOFAS members work side-by-side with orthopedic surgeons throughout Vietnam training local surgeons and learning how to help underserved populations. As you can see, your dollars go a long way when given to The Foundation of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society. We thank you for your support, and if you haven't contributed, we ask that you do so today. The Foundation helps ensure the future of research, education, and humanitarian service in orthopaedic foot and ankle, and every dollar counts toward these efforts.

Thank you.
