American College of Dentists Foundation
The American College of Dentists Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable 501(c)3 public foundation supporting educational and programmatic efforts of the American College of Dentists and collaborating organizations. The Foundation was established in 1972 to raise tax-deductible support for educational, literary, and scientific initiatives to advance oral health and the dental profession. The majority of the funding for the Foundation is provided by annual donations from Fellows, their family and colleagues, and other friends of the College. For decades, Foundation funds have supported initiatives of the College, including thought-provoking speakers and educators at the Annual Meeting, continuing education, educational materials for dental students, scholarships for advanced studies in ethics, and other impactful projects.
