Help Us Raise $50,000 For Research!

AAOP 50k for 50 years

Calling all talented AAOP members and affiliates! Are you a photographer? Are you an artist? A jeweler?

In 2026, the AAOP will be celebrating our 50-year organizational anniversary.  Our goal is to obtain $50,000 over the next 2 and half years to celebrate this semi-centennial, or golden anniversary, by helping to fund the next generation of up-and-coming orofacial pain researchers to launch us into our next 50 years.

The AAOP Research Fundraising Committee is requesting items for donation for a silent auction and raffle to be held during the AAOP’s 48th Annual Session May 9-12, 2024 at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ, where proceeds will go toward research grant funding.

If you are interested in donating a travel-friendly item for the auction or raffle, please contact the research committee at: for more information.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, donations are tax deductible according to federal and state law. We are also accepting cash donations as underwriting, if you prefer to donate in that manner.
