When you support the Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) Foundation, you know that your investment is working for the future of the 50,000 children and adults in the United States who live with OI.
Your support will help the OI Foundation continue to improve the quality of life for people affected by OI through research to find treatments and a cure, education, awareness, and mutual support.
The OI Foundation makes it easy to support our work now-- and in the future. With so many different ways to give, we're confident that we can help you find the approach that meets both your needs and goals. Our development staff is available to discuss your options with complete confidentiality and without obligation. Call (301) 947-0083 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are always needed at the OI Foundation. You can volunteer your time and abilities in a number of different ways. If you are interested in joining the growing network of volunteers who are working with the Foundation, please contact the Foundation offices. Here is a partial list of OI Foundation volunteer activities and opportunities:
- Local Support Network Group Leader - A local network group is a group of people affected by OI who gather periodically in their own community to enjoy each other’s company, share information and encourage each other. This format allows people to create a caring community of support and to learn from each other. Each group will have a leader or a team of co-leaders who will organize the meetings, develop a local contact list and keep in touch with the OI Foundation.
- Fundraising Volunteer - You can raise much needed funds for the OI Foundation by hosting a dinner, golf tournament, garage sale or other community-wide event. You can also plan an event in your own hometown. If you’re interested in helping the OI Foundation raise funds or participating in one of our special fundraising events, contact Melissa Bonardi at email@example.com
- Workplace Giving Volunteer - Represent the OI Foundation at Combined Federal Campaign events at your place of work if you are a federal employee, or in your hometown during the fall of each year. Each event requires setting up a tabletop display, distributing literature and answering questions. For more information on this opportunity please contact Danielle Cymber at firstname.lastname@example.org
