Smiles across Virginia will be brighter and healthier in 2016 thanks to the Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation and 18 organizations committed to improving oral health in the Commonwealth. Through our community-based approach, our Foundation provides grants to local organizations working to help those in need. In December 2015, grants totaling $475,000 were awarded to 18, 501(c)(3), tax exempt organizations whose work will positively improve the oral health of Virginians through education and access to care for the under or uninsured.
“Our challenge is to find ways to make the biggest impact on improving oral health for the underserved,” said George A. Levicki, president and CEO, Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation. “By providing much needed funding, local organizations can focus more time and effort on delivering oral health education and care to our most vulnerable citizens.”
Since its creation in 2012, the Delta Dental of Virginia Foundation has provided $3,653,000 to 44 Virginia non-profit organizations. In 2014 alone, these grant award recipients were able to provide dental care to more than 96,349 children and 67,977 adults who had previously been unable to afford or access care.
