Continued Commitment to the Specialty®

Continued Commitment to the Specialty

There are four designations you may choose for your Continued Commitment to the Specialty®:

a.)  Please permanently restrict my gift to the Research Initiative Fund. I understand that funds from my gift will be invested in perpetuity with only the annual earnings from these investments used in support of orthodontic research.
b.)  Please permanently restrict my gift to the AAOF Endowment.  I understand that funds from my gift will be invested in perpetuity with only the annual earnings from these investments used in support of the Foundation.
c.)  Please use my gift only in support of the Craniofacial Growth Legacy Collections Project (
d.)  You may use my gift for orthodontic education and operational expenses at the discretion of the AAO Foundation Board of Directors.

The choice is yours to make; however, if you do not make a designation, the “default” is to “Unrestricted”.

This is either an initial pledge or pledge increase.

Century Club Option

Regents, Fellows and Founders
