As a philanthropic and charitable organization, the MDS Foundation seeks to enhance the oral health of individuals by providing grants for sustainable programs that improve access to dental care. Currently, two grant options are available. Access to Care Grants are designed to help larger facilities directly address access needs in the Commonwealth. Targeted Grants are designed to help smaller organizations increase access directly in their community.
The MDS Foundation's Targeted Grants provide funding to organizations or programs that want to increase access to dental care on a smaller scale than the larger Access to Care Grants. Targeted Grants are limited to $2,000 and are open to public organizations.
The MDS Foundation Grant Program has awarded thousands of dollars to organizations that are increasing access to oral care and education for underserved populations in the Commonwealth, generating sustainable oral care for thousands of Massachusetts residents.
