Ways to Give

Your Gifts Are Making a Positive Impact

The Michigan Dental Association Foundation is focused on providing charitable programs and services to improve the dental health of Michigan citizens. The MDA Foundation also advances the profession of dentistry through various scholarship opportunities and other assistance to students of dentistry, dental hygiene and dental assisting.

There are many ways to support the MDA Foundation:

Scholarship Support

Help offset the rising cost of dental education by designating your gift toward student [NM1] scholarships. The MDA Foundation offers scholarships to dental, dental hygiene, and dental assisting students.

Access-to-Care Support

Are you passionate about all Michigan citizens having access to dental health care? With close to 35 percent of Michigan Citizens not having dental insurance or access to a dentist in their community, your gift will help them get the care they need.

Dental Education

Good dental health begins before birth. More than 40 percent of pregnant women living below the poverty level are not aware of what they can do to prevent poor dental health for themselves or their children. Giving to Dental Education helps your Foundation provide educational materials and programs to these women and their families and to educational facilities located in low-income areas.

Pledge of Support

Make your gift over time! Any gift in any amount is welcome. However, larger gifts are easier to make if you break them into monthly, quarterly or annual installments. A gift of $84 each month is $1,000 per year. A gift of $2,000 per year for five years becomes a $10,000 gift.
