What is the Maine Osteopathic
Educational Foundation? (MOEF)
The Maine Osteopathic Educational Foundation’s is a non-profit organization whose mission is to advance the educational goals and public educational activities that promote the osteopathic profession throughout the state of Maine.
What is a Sustaining Member?
Sustaining members provide support to the Maine Osteopathic Educational Foundation which directly benefits the low interest loan fund for osteopathic medical students. Personal contributions made to MOEF are 100% tax deductible. Your contribution provides a long-term commitment, devoted entirely to easing the financial burden for promising Maine students of osteopathic medicine. This program was created through an initial $25,000 matching grant from the Osteopathic Heritage Fund (OHF) and is a collaborative partnership with the Maine Medical Association.
With these dollars, the MOEF has created a low interest loan opportunity that was not previously available to osteopathic medical students in Maine.
How many osteopathic medical students have benefited to date?
Each year, the loan fund contributes approximately $300,000 - $500,000 in low interest loans to D.O. and M.D. Students. The loan fund provides 15% or up to $45,000 of the available low interest loan funds for D.O. osteopathic medical student applications per year.
