Why Become A Supporting Member Of The Foundation?
Since 1985, the Foundation’s primary functions have been to support osteopathic physicians through ongoing education and research as well as providing the general public with health and wellness information that promotes the unique qualities of osteopathic medicine.
Over the years, how we accomplish those functions has been determined by our Board of Directors, who are elected by the members of the Foundation at our ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING. This is an important oversight responsibility for every 501(c)3 public charity.
Your membership gives you a voice in how we move forward as a Foundation.
Just as importantly, your dues contribution goes directly to the General Endowment Fund of the Foundation. So we never spend your dues, we always invest your dues. Then, with the oversight of the Board of Directors, the Foundation spends the return on your investment on programs that support the principles of osteopathic medicine.
As a member of the Foundation, we will offer you the opportunity to GET INVOLVED AS A VOLUNTEER as well as occasionally ask for your input on issues important to the Board of Directors.
LIFETIME MEMBERSHIPS are available for a generous contribution of $1000. This can be paid one-time or in smaller installments.
ANNUAL MEMBERSHIPS begin for as little as $25
