The CFAO fund continues to grow and contributions can be made in many ways:

(a) McIntyre Fellowship Program
CAO members who make a one time, tax deductible contribution of $500.00 to the CFAO, are made McIntyre Fellows. This fund honours the memory of Dr. Reyburn R. McIntyre, founding president of the Canadian Association of Orthodontists.

(b) Annual Membership Renewal
The CAO makes it very easy for members when paying their annual Association membership dues to contribute an additional $75.00 which goes to the Foundation. Charitable receipts are sent for the Foundation portion.

(c) In Memorium and other donations
The CAO and any member may donate to the CFAO at any time. The CAO makes a donation to the CFAO in memory of members who have passed away. Contribution Forms are available from the CAO Office.

(d) Corporate Donations
Corporations are approached regularly and may donate any amount of money to the CFAO.
