HOLD A FUNDRAISER
Help the DFO in a unique way! Over the years, the DFO has been fortunate to have so many creative, energetic, and caring individuals, businesses, community groups and students support us through third-party fundraising. Fundraising through special events is a great way to support our mission advancing oral health education, providing charitable care, and coordinating resources for Oregon's children and vulnerable communities. No matter how big or small the contribution is, you are helping to make a difference for those that need our services. Before you hold a fundraising event on our behalf, please review our Fundraiser Guidelines, and then complete the fundraiser application to be submitted to our office. Access the complete information and application packet HERE.
Honor a friend, loved one, employee or referring dentist. Make a gift in the name of someone you care about. An acknowledgement card is sent on your behalf to honor the memory of a departed loved one, celebrate a special occasion or recognized a valued employee or business partner.
Get your company involved and include the DFO in your employee giving campaign. Companies often match employee contributions, and this is a great way to involve employees and demonstrate your commitment to our community.
Get your school involved with help from teachers and students who can create their own school project for the Tooth Taxi, such as collecting toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss to create oral hygiene kits for kids. Or put on a poster contest to raise awareness of the importance of good oral and dental health in your school.
Donate your old (and beloved) car to help the DFO and receive a tax deduction! It's easy because we have partnered with Center for Car Donations, and they handle all the details even picking up the car from your home or place of employment. And the best part: it doesn't even have to be running!
Dental professionals can join us on the Tooth Taxi. Donate a day, or even half a day to help deliver oral health education to children in classroom settings in schools.
Everyone can volunteer to help promote or serve at one of the many DFO events including registration at our golf tournament, wrapping bottles of wine for the Wall of Wine, or even selling Motor Mouth Raffle tickets.
Join the DFO's Cornerstone Society along with other like-minded individuals who have remembered the Dental Foundation of Oregon in their estate plans, ensuring the future of the foundation and leaving a true legacy for Oregons children and vulnerable communities.

At no cost to you, you can contribute by quickly registering the DFO as your beneficiary through the AmazonSmile program which donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the foundation, and the registering your free Fred Meyer Community Rewards card to the DFO #81176 with a percentage of your purchases donated quarterly to the foundation.
