Support AOTF

Advance the Science that Supports Evidence-Based Practice

Occupational Therapy in the 21st century will be defined by evidence-based practice. AOTF is working to be the leader in supporting new research that will build that evidence. But we need your help to do it.

AOTF relies on the generosity of a community of donors to provide the resources we need to advance the science of occupational therapy. Each year gifts to AOTF fund new research grants, scholarships and fellowships as well as programs for future scientists and emerging leaders. A donation to AOTF is an investment into the future of OT. Your gift helps promote a society in which individuals, regardless of age or ability, may participate in the daily occupations of their choice.

What Does Your Gift Support

AOTF is grateful to the many people, organizations, corporations and schools that support our mission, participate with us in our work and strengthen occupational therapy.
