NC Dental Health Endowment

The NC Dental Health Endowment offers small, one time grants to support programs that promote oral health care in North Carolina. It is not a long term fiunding strategy. The Dental Health Endowment funds only clinics that are providing dental services to the needy. The NC Dental Health Endowment has three goals: Address the oral health needs of the state’s underserved at the local level, conduct ongoing campaigns to fund the endowment and apply endowment funds to support community oral health programs for those with limited access to regular dental care.

Please Note: No endowment funds go to support the North Carolina Dental Health Fund (NCDHF) or any of its programs such as NCMOM, GKAS or The Elder Care Initiative.
