Delta Dental of Arizona, through its Foundation, selected 34 nonprofit organizations across the state to receive $766,506 in grants and dental supplies to improve the oral health of nearly 93,000 Arizonans. These funds were awarded to address the oral health needs of underserved children, pregnant women and seniors in 2020.
In addition to the annual community grants program, which awarded $566,506 to 30 organizations this year, a new Delta Dental of Arizona IMPACT Grant program distributed an additional $200,000 to four organizations meeting select criteria. Nonprofits invited to apply for these grants must provide oral health services and education to over 650 children, pregnant women or seniors each year and have a proven record of fiscal and reporting responsibility. These grants provide $50,000-$75,000 a year for two years.
