CDA Foundation offers grants for nonprofit organizations to receive dental supplies. Nonprofits can apply for the 2023 grant cycle through March 31.

Between $5,000 and $25,000 of in-kind materials and supplies are awarded over two years to organizations across California through the Dental Materials and Supplies Grant. This unique CDA Foundation program works in partnership with Henry Schein Cares to support nonprofit organizations that provide care to underserved individuals in their communities.

Since the grant's inception, more than 180 nonprofit organizations have received over $6.5 million in supplies, helping to allow dental care valued at $79 million.

In 2022, Henry Schein awarded the below organizations with materials and supplies needed for dental operations and health services:

  • Imperial Beach Community Clinic, Imperial Beach

Nonprofits can now apply for the grant

Heading into its 20th year, the 2023 grant application cycle opened Jan. 1 and will close Friday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m.

Community-based organizations that provide programs to underserved and diverse clients and demonstrate relevance to the Foundation’s mission will have a greater opportunity for funding. The Foundation will also consider organizations that provide care in a designated Dental Health Care Professional Shortage Area and can use and dispense a high volume of materials and supplies.

To be eligible for the grant, organizations must be classified by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Interested applicants can access the complete guidelines on eligibility and selection criteria, plus details about the application process when they apply through the grant webpage.
