Community Grants

2018 Community Grants Applications are now available!

The Illinois State Dental Society Foundation annually funds a Community Grants Program as part of its Mission.  The Foundation wishes to encourage small local community oral health enhancement projects by financially assisting those worthy projects.

In addition to the biennial Illinois Mission of Mercy Program, which in the past has provided two days of free dental care in one area of Illinois to nearly 2000 individuals in that area who were greatly in need of dental care; the annual Community Grant Programs helps to promote the cause of good oral hygiene on a smaller individual scale in some of the most underserved areas of Illinois.  Together these programs provided dental care and education to over 34,000 Illinois citizens for 2016 and 2017.

 Please download the Community Grants application and guidelines.  The deadline to apply is June 15, 2018.  Please contact Sandy Graves at 217-321-0355 in you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Dr. Susan Bordenave-Bishop
