The holiday season, often referred to as the “season of giving”, is winding down. But why limit giving to a couple months out of the year? Thanks to some incredible organizations and charities, the Delta Dental Community Care Foundation* donated nearly $16 million to support more than 400 projects throughout 2018, each with the goal of building healthier, happier communities. 

As the year comes to an end, we’d like to thank these partners, and highlight just a few of the great projects we had the opportunity to sponsor in 2018. Take a look.

We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings! In the years to come, we pledge to give at least 10% of our net income back to charitable organizations aligned with our purpose: Creating smiles. Improving health. Enhancing lives.®

If you have a project you want sponsored, learn about our funding options and apply on the Community Center section of our website.
