CDA Foundation

CDA_2013logo_CMYKThe CDA believes in giving back to the community through its charitable efforts. That’s possible because of the CDA Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, that supports the CDA’s access-to-care agenda and Dental Health Matters efforts to increase discussions about oral health and the dental profession in Colorado communities and advocate for smart improvements that increase access to dental care.

Semiannually, the CDA Foundation awards monetary grants to 501(c)3 organizations dedicated to improving access-to-care.  Non-profit organizations can download CDA Foundation Grant Application.  The next submission deadline is March 16, 2018.
