ADA Foundation’s semi-annual grants spread smiles

April 18, 2016 In November, the ADA Foundation awarded 11 organizations across the country grants of up to $10,000, for a total of $108,376.

Through the Semi-annual Grants Program, the Foundation provides grants of up to $10,000 to U.S.-based organizations whose charitable activities further the Foundation’s purposes of improving access to oral health care. Access to care is one of the four pillars of the Foundation.

The Northern Dental Care Center in northern, rural Minnesota is 100 miles from the Canadian border and centrally located to three Native American reservations, said Jeanne Edevold Larson, executive director of the center. The center logged 17,000 patient appointments in 2015, with 43 percent children and 23 percent Native American.
