The WDA Foundation awards thousands of dollars annually to non-profit programs and projects that bring oral health care to low-income Wisconsin residents. The Annual Grant Program authorizes funding in December for the following calendar year. Nonprofit organizations that are engaged in efforts to improve dental health for state residents are invited to apply. Applications must be submitted via email. The Annual Grant Program is available only to qualifying charitable organizations. It is not available to individuals. The Annual Grant Program application period opens Feb. 1 and closes July 31. Applications for the 2016 funding year are now closed. Please check back in early 2016 for the 2017 grant application.
In some instances, financial grants are more than is actually needed by non-profits. Recognizing the pressing need for basic oral health care supplies, the WDA Foundation offers its Smile Program to qualifying non-profits. The Smile Program is focused on providing underprivileged children, adults and seniors with the toothbrushes and toothpaste needed to put them on the right track for oral health. Applications must be submitted via e-mail. The Smile Program is available only to qualifying charitable organizations. It is not available to individuals.
The Smile Program has exhausted its supplies for 2015. Requests for 2016 may be submitted beginning in September.
