Why not help ADA Foundation on Giving Tuesday?
December 01, 2015
Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday have passed.
Dec. 1 is Giving Tuesday, a movement created in 2012 to celebrate and encourage charitable giving.
Association members and nonmembers alike can become part of the movement by making a gift to the ADA Foundation to help it fulfill its mission of C.A.R.E. — charitable assistance, access to care, research and education.
In 2014 — the last year in which complete records are available — the Foundation provided more than $1.3 million through 164 grants and scholarships in an effort to improve the nation’s oral health.
Assistance provided by the Foundation includes:
- Aid to dentists who suffered losses due to natural disasters
- Access to care for children and adults through Give Kids a Smile, Missions of Mercy and other programs.
- Education about the importance of infant oral care for new mothers.
- Important oral health research.
Every dollar donated goes to support one of the programs. No money goes toward administrative overhead.
