Quick Summary:

As donors consider options for year-end giving, the CDA Foundation has four new donation ideas that support reducing barriers to oral health care in underserved communities, including using AmazonSmile and charitable contributions.

Across families, companies and communities, year-end giving looks different this year. Nonprofit organizations, especially those that facilitate essential access to health care, need support more than ever. While many donors have had to adjust their giving plans, know that there are still many easy — and even cash-free — ways to contribute. Opportunities to maximize your year-end giving dollars are also available.

Here are four ways you can support CDA Foundation programs that reduce barriers to oral health care in underserved communities.

Cash-free option:

Give simply by shopping. Through AmazonSmile, shop online and Amazon will automatically donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to your favorite charitable organization. Just choose the CDA Foundation, fill your list and let the donations add up at no extra cost.

Short-on-time solution:

Give on the go. It can be quick to contribute and get donations in before the tax deadline. Just donate by text message! Text CARE4HEALTH to 41444 to make a donation to the CDA Foundation at any time.

Meaningful giving:

Share good memories. As a holiday gift, donate in honor of someone special who has made you smile, or donate in the memory of someone that you’re missing this time of year. If you are a practice owner, you can also consider making donations in the name of your team members or giving paid volunteer time to make it easy on them to pay it forward. 

Deduction maximization:

Get some tax-time karma. Through the CARES Act, you can now take a one-time deduction up to $300, even if you do not itemize charitable contributions. If you do itemize, you can deduct the full contribution amount. Be sure to consult your tax advisor regarding your specific charitable distributions.
