Contribute to the Foundation

Each year the Foundation awards grants to deserving organizations and projects, but we cannot do it without your help. The generosity of our donors is vital to the continued success of the MDS Foundation in working towards improving the oral health of Massachusetts residents.

Last year, your contributions helped us to fund projects ranging from providing dental care to over 100 homeless youth who visited Bridge over Troubled Water to helping Springfield Technical Community College to outfit its new community dental clinic.

Ways to Give

It is through the generous support of our donors that we are able to fund programs that increase access to dental care and education. If you would like to make a donation to the Foundation, there are many ways that you are able to contribute! Give someone the gift of a smile today.
