How the IOS is funded

Prof. Moira O’Brien, founder of the Irish Osteoporosis Society recently spoke about how the society is funded,

“The Irish Osteoporosis Society, which is a registered charitable organisation has two full time employees to cover the Republic of Ireland.  Neither employee receives a bonus, a top up to their salary, or a pension. The Charity does not provide a company car.  

The Charity is very dependent on Charity Membership Fees (€25 annually) from those whom the Charity have helped through their Helpline, and those who avail of the information on the Charity’s website as well as support from our sponsors.By supporting the Charity, you are helping to increase the amount of awareness regarding Osteoporosis, the silent disease. Sadly only 15% of sufferers are diagnosed. Please help us to help the Irish public; this disease is preventable and treatable in the majority of cases.”

Please take a moment to have a look at our website to see the range of activities that we are involved with.
