Why give to the Foundation?
The Foundation is driven by its mission to exist for the betterment or oral health care as a component of overall health: education, disease prevention, and community patient care. We often take for granted the benefits of oral health in the communities where we reside. Daily, we have access to services that others are not so fortunate to have. Through our contributions, the support of dental education and local services organizations, we can give the gift of good health to kids, families and communities.
What is an endowment?
An Endowment is a donation of monies to a university and/or nonprofit organization for the ongoing support of education or oral health services.
Can we simultaneously fund the endowment and distribute scholarships or do we have to wait until it is fully funded?
Most universities will grant scholarships while the Endowment is being funded. Additional monies may be required to fulfill the scholarships.
Can I specify exactly where I want my contributions to be donated to?
Absolutely. When you make a contribution to the Foundation, you may restrict your monies a dental school, community program, or dental organization of your choosing. We will make the donation to that organization in your name. You will receive credit for the gift.
Can I arrange for my contribution be deducted from my paycheck?
Yes! Please see your manager for a payroll deduction form, or contact Sarah Romano
