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.
