Support OT Research with Memorials and Endowments

A special and enduring way to celebrate or honor loved ones, special occasions, or milestones is with a gift to the Foundation in the name of that individual.  Your donation will support scholarships, research and publications, development and recognition of leadership, education and maintaining the largest collection of occupational therapy resources in the country.

Gifts In Honor Of

Gifts may be made in honor of person or event, such as a graduation, Mother’s Day, wedding or other important milestone.  When you make a gift in honor of a special person, Foundation staff will send a letter to that person to let them know you made a gift to the Foundation in their honor.

Gift in Memory Of

Memorial gifts are made to commemorate the life and legacy of an individual who is no longer with us.  When you make a memorial gift to the Foundation, we will send a letter to the family of the person who has died to inform them of your kind and thoughtful gift.

Endowed Funds

The creation of a named endowment to support a scholarship, fellowship, internship, lecture or program is another way to honor a loved one.  Endowed funds continue in perpetuity, supporting future generations of professionals and leaders in occupational therapy and touching countless others who benefit from their expertise.
