What You Can Do

Thank you for believing in, supporting, and inspiring us to continue infusing the strong programs of the OAFP Foundation with fresh ideas that help us more fully achieve our mission. It is only through you that we can advance our commitment to family medicine and the people we serve.

Have you heard that the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians is celebrating a huge milestone this year? Its our 70th anniversary! You have the opportunity to join in on the celebration by making sure that the specialty of family medicine continues to thrive for another 70 years by making a $70 tax-deductible contribution to the Foundation.

Individuals that contribute $70 to the Foundation in 2018 will be recognized on this webpage as well as during the 2018 Family Medicine Celebration (formerly the Members Assembly) set for Saturday-Sunday, August 18-19, at the Grand Event Center in Columbus, OH. A 3D cake will be created as part of the celebration to thank each $70 donor by placing his or her name on a candle. How many candles can we fill the cake with?

If every active OAFP member gave $70 this year, the Foundation would secure $175,000! That equates to providing almost 150 student stipends in the Foundation’s flagship program, the Leroy A. Rodgers, MD, Preceptorship Program!

We hope you will consider making a donation to honor the Academy’s milestone year and ensure continued success, growth, and progress for the next 70 years.
