How To Donate To VDAF


 

We are passionate about oral health and dental care because they profoundly affect the well-being of individuals and communities. However, for many people, financial realities and other challenges leave them with no hope of securing care.

You can help. Your gift to the Virginia Dental Association Foundation makes a tangible difference in the health and quality of life of underserved and uninsured Virginians by providing free care through our dental outreach programs.

Gifts of Cash

Making a gift by check or cash is the simplest and most common way to give. Use our online donor form or mail checks to the VDAF, 3460 Mayland Court, Suite 110, Richmond, VA 23233.

You may want to take advantage of the following when making a cash gift:

  • Monthly or Quarterly Giving. Set up a recurring gift using our simple online donor form.
  • Tributes. Honor a friend, family member or special occasion or memorialize a special person by making a gift in their honor or memory. The VDAF will send a card acknowledging your gift, if desired.

C.C., a veteran, needed dentures to help with glycemic control for management of his diabetes. Once our DDS volunteer dentist had completed full upper and lower dentures for C.C., he could not only eat a healthier diet but was thrilled that his beloved grandchildren were no longer frightened of his appearance and now happy to be near him!
