Every 20 seconds, someone in the U.S. breaks a bone as a result of osteoporosis. We need your help now to reverse this trend. Give today to help improve patient care and support for those who have already broken bones due to osteoporosis and to protect future generations from this debilitating disease. For more information on how you can support our Mission, please see below.
NOF depends on the generosity of individuals across the country to educate the public and health professionals on ways to prevent, diagnose and treat osteoporosis. Through tribute, memorial, planned or recurring gifts, your support will help us provide better care for those suffering from osteoporosis and build generations of strength to continue our fight against osteoporosis.
If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit National Osteoporosis Foundation and receive tax benefits in return. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short. If you’d like to use your IRA or Roth IRA distribution to support NOF in the future, please contact the NOF Development office at 703-647-3030.
Planned gifts to NOF provide an opportunity to create a lasting legacy for future generations while maximizing tax benefits. Learn more about the many ways to give during your lifetime and as part of your legacy.
NOF understands that it takes a team of doctors, caregivers and other health professionals working together as a team to effectively manage osteoporosis. Our corporate partners are a critical part of this team. With your support, we are working to start conversations about bone health and family health history in order to raise awareness for osteoporosis and support the most vulnerable – those who have suffered a fracture.

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day dedicated to giving back. Charities, families, businesses, community centers and students from around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and give. Your gift on #GivingTuesdayNow will help provide patient education materials for doctors and nurses to distribute at their offices, clinics and hospitals. Please help us educate people about what they can do to prevent falls and fractures and how to get help if they need it. Please join the millions giving back on #GivingTuesdayNOW with a gift to NOF.
Named for NOF’s founding partner, the Honorable Paul G. Rogers, the giving society recognizes those who share Mr. Rogers’ lifetime tradition of action and advocacy to promote bone health and osteoporosis prevention through annual gifts totaling $5,000 or more.
