ORS: Developing a Culture of Giving
The ORS Research Development Fund was established to support our Society’s mission of advancing the global orthopaedic research agenda through excellence in research, education, collaboration, communication, and advocacy.
The education of our members has stood as one of the core pillars of our society since its inception in 1954. Today, the ORS remains deeply dedicated to fostering the professional growth and development of our members.
Thanks to the generosity and goodwill of our members we are able to carry out this mission by funding programs that are essential to achieving our goal of becoming the world’s leading forum for the dissemination of new musculoskeletal research findings.
Above all, your tax-deductible donation will not only support the members of our society but all of the individuals whose lives are affected by musculoskeletal research.
In addition to supporting the ORS Research Development Fund, you may also choose to support one of the following opportunities:
The ORS/OREF Postdoctoral Fellowship Grant provides one year of support for individuals with PhD, MD, DVM, or DO degrees for full-time postdoctoral training in orthopaedic research with an experienced research advisor.
The ORS/OREF Resident Research Project Grants provide funding to orthopaedic surgery residents in approved orthopaedic programs.
You may donate to both the ORS/OREF Postdoctoral Fellowship Grant as well as the ORS/OREF Resident Research Project Grants. Your gift enables orthopaedic residents and post-doctoral ORS members to pursue important research that may one day translate into innovative new treatments and therapies that help patients recover their mobility and enjoy improved quality of life.
Donors to the OREF annual fund may designate a portion of their gifts to ORS. PhD members of ORS contributing $500 or more to the OREF annual fund receive Order of Merit recognition from OREF and the opportunity to designate $250 or more to OREF and the balance to ORS.
*Donors who contributed through OREF may not appear immediately on our website.
