Who We Are
The ADA Foundation ... Connecting people. Changing lives.
As dentistry’s premier philanthropic and charitable organization, the ADA Foundation is a catalyst for uniting people and organizations to make a difference through better oral health. We secure contributions and provide grants for sustainable programs in charitable assistance, access to care, research, and education.
The ADA Foundation's four Mission Pillars are Charitable Assistance, Access to Care, Research, and Education.
Our strategic ties with the American Dental Association, coupled with our strong volunteer leadership and our generous donors, give us a powerful yet flexible infrastructure to anticipate and quickly respond to the most pressing needs affecting dentistry and the public’s oral health.
