OREF & AOSSM—partnering for success

Help support the research—and the researchers—responsible for reshaping orthopaedics with a gift to AOSSM through OREF. OREF funds research and education that benefits all of orthopaedics and also helps raise funds for AOSSM projects. Since 1995, OREF-AOSSM collaborations have raised more than $3.2 million for AOSSM-directed and administered research and education grants.

Through 2010, OREF has raised more than $30 million for its partner organizations and has itself funded, through OREF-directed contributions, $85 million in research and education to advance the science and practice of orthopaedics..

Support AOSSM through OREF today.

All gifts of $1,000 or more to the OREF Annual Campaign earn Order of Merit recognition.  AAOS members giving $2,500 or more are eligible for early bird registration for Priority Housing at the AAOS Annual Meeting. 
Please give generously to advance the science and practice of orthopaedics.
