ISAKOS Support

Individual Giving: ISAKOS Godfather Initiative


The Godfather Initiative was created in order to provide meaningful benefits to individuals who donate to Global Connection, as well as to individuals interested in ISAKOS membership, but who may not currently have the resources to become members. Godfather participation helps the Society's ongoing efforts to provide high-quality programs and resources to members worldwide, in addition to helping fulfill the ISAKOS mission to advance the worldwide exchange and dissemination of education, research and patient care in arthroscopy, knee surgery and orthopaedic sports medicine.

If an individual donates $5,000 or more to Global Connection and designates this money to the Godfather Initiative, a portion of that donation will be allocated toward an ISAKOS membership scholarship for individuals 45 years of age or under.

The membership scholarship program offers those in need of funding for membership the opportunity to submit an application and statement of need. Accepted applicants receive membership for five years and a complimentary registration to an ISAKOS Congress during those five years.
