What does it mean to be a Friend of the Foundation?

"friend" ˈfrend, a noun:  one that favors or promotes something (such as a charity).

Everything we do to promote oral health for all can only be done with and through others.  It takes a team of committed volunteers, donors, sponsors, partners, & change agents to make good things happen to improve oral health in North Dakota. 

Explore all the ways you can get involved as a Friend of the Foundation.

Be Legendary

“What you do for yourself dies with you when you leave this world, what you do for others lives on forever.” – Sir Ken Robinson.

Giving to our endowment, creating a donor advised fund, or leaving the foundation in your will/estate are all great ways to ensure your money goes to work in perpetuity.
