CHICAGO—The ADA Foundation (ADAF) has extended the application deadline for its Samuel D. Harris Fund for Children’s Dental Health Grants to Wednesday, April 19. Applicants may apply online at adafoundation.org.
The ADAF annually awards Harris Grants of up to $5,000 each through a competitive process to nonprofit organizations and agencies that provide innovative and effective oral health instruction and motivation for caregivers of preschool-aged children. In 2016, the ADAF awarded 25 Harris Grants totaling almost $120,000.
The ADAF created the Samuel D. Harris Fund for Children’s Dental Health in 1999 through a permanent endowment established through a generous gift by Dr. Samuel D. Harris, a distinguished pediatric dentist and philanthropist.
