Orthofix’s mission is to improve patient’s lives by providing superior reconstruction and regenerative musculoskeletal solutions to physicians worldwide. In order to help fulfill this mission, when appropriate, Orthofix supports requests for grants and other charitable donations to be used in connection with medical education, CME-accredited speaker programs, fellowships at teaching institutions, charitable events or scientific research related to orthopedic conditions and treatments.
The Orthofix Grant Committee meets on a monthly basis and reviews all grant requests regardless of the amount of support requested.
Each completed Grant Request Form, along with all applicable supporting documentation, must be provided to the Grant Committee for review a minimum of six (6) weeks prior to the inception of the event.

Educational Grants, Charitable Contribution and Gala Event/Fundraising FAQs
Orthofix has a limited budget for sponsoring fellowship programs. Orthofix aims to support highly-respected, top-tier academic teaching institutions who are training the next generation of surgeons in orthopedic, neurosurgery or specialty orthopedic fellowship programs. Where possible, the company seeks to divide its support across programs that are geographically diverse. Orthofix prefers to sponsor accredited fellowship programs, but will consider strong programs that are not accredited if there are compelling reasons to do so. In no event can Orthofix commit to sponsor a specific fellow. Approved grants will be made to the affiliated institution, not an individual. Fellowship funding from Orthofix is subject to Sunshine Act reporting. If you believe your program fits this criteria, please proceed with completing a Fellowship Application Form.
Orthofix may provide support for exhibits to a third-party to host a designated booth, exhibit or other space devoted to Orthofix or Orthofix products. Typically, this would involve the payment of a fee by the Company to set up product information, a demonstration booth or tabletop display at events such as an individual hospital symposium, charitable fundraiser or trade show.
Orthofix may provide funding for exhibits whether or not the Company provides a grant for the same educational program. Should you have a request for an exhibit or booth space opportunity, please contact your local Orthofix marketing, medical education or sales representative.
