DFO Community Grant Program
The DFO Community Grant Program will NOT be accepting any Letters of Inquiry or proposals in 2015.

If you have any questions about this please contact Executive Director, Conor McNulty.

The Dental Foundation of Oregon Board of Directors will provide grants to nonprofit dental clinics/programs to support dental care for children who are disadvantaged and do not have access to care. Projects that demonstrate local support, including support from dental and other health professionals, will receive preference. Consideration will also be given to programs that support dental education and teach children and parents the benefits of preventive dental care. Since its inception, the DFO Community Grant Program has provided over one million dollars to support dental care for the underserved in Oregon.
