Corporate Support Opportunities

The Foundation invites the OMS community's corporate citizens to help advance the specialty through the support of innovative research, high-quality education opportunities and a strong academic sector.

OMS Foundation Annual Fund

A gift to the Annual Fund supports the mission and programs of the Foundation including:

Anesthesia and patient safety study

Jointly funded by AAOMS, the OMS Foundation is funding a Clinical Research Support Grant specific to anesthesia and patient safety with $150,000 for a two-year study.

Faculty Educator Development Awards (FEDA)

The OMS Foundation support AAOMS' Faculty Educator Development Award (FEDA) to encourage young oral and maxillofacial surgeons to choose a long term faculty career in the specialty.

Research Support Grants

Research Support Grants further the development of scientific investigators committed to problems related to oral and maxillofacial surgery. Each grant is $75,000 and is awarded to the institution.

Support of AAOMS Education Programs
Clinical Research Support Grants

Clinical Research Support Grants encourage promising lines of patient-oriented and outcomes-oriented research consistent with the research priorities established by the specialty. In 2020, the Foundation intends to fund two $150,000 Clinical Research Support Grants with one grant dedicated to addressing the safety of current or proposed anesthesia delivery techniques.

Resident Travel Scholarships for AAOMS Education Programs

To defray the costs of traveling to AAOMS education programs, the Foundation provides a limited amount of travel scholarships to the AAOMS education programs: Clinical and Scientific Innovations in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (CSIOMS), Principles of Head and Neck Oncology Conference and Clinical Trials Methods Course.

Student Research Training Awards

The OMS Foundation annually funds one $12,500 Student Research Training Award to attract qualified dental students to commit to the OMS specialty.

Other Giving Opportunities

Global Initative for Volunteerism and Education (GIVE)

GIVE offers travel stipends of up to $2,500 to OMS residents traveling internationally to serve with humanitarian healthcare teams. Contributions to GIVE are restricted for use by that program.

Gift-Match Challenges

Gift-match challenges generate excitement and urgency for the Foundation’s limited-duration fundraising appeals, and often generate donations that substantially exceed the challenge’s stated goal. Corporate challenge opportunities range from $25,000 to $100,000, and gift-match supporters enjoy recognition in print and digital media for the duration of their challenge (30 to 90 days).

The OMS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law
