Through Delta Dental's two philanthropic programs—the Delta Dental Foundation and the Brighter Futures initiative—we direct our charitable giving to make a real and lasting difference for the people in the communities we serve. We do this by providing grants to organizations and causes that support our goals of improving oral health and enhancing quality of life.
Since it was established in 1980 as the philanthropic arm of Delta Dental, the Delta Dental Foundation has provided grants totaling nearly $17 million.
Delta Dental’s Brighter Futures is a major philanthropic endeavor that focuses on children’s oral health, overall health and literacy, and it has the potential to transform the lives of children across Michigan.
Delta Dental is an enthusiastic supporter of improving children's health, and serves as an administrator of dental benefits for programs such as Healthy Kids Dental and MIChild. Delta Dental also provides funding for a number of programs designed to promote children’s oral health.
