As a grantmaking partner, we work alongside community organizations that share a common goal — to improve oral health. We work with nonprofit organizations to inform our initiatives and strategies. Our grantmaking occurs either as invited grants or open grantmaking. Both seek to support communities that experience oral health inequities by funding proven activities, identifying and testing new solutions to improve oral health or advancing systems or policy change.
We provide funding to organizations contributing to our focus areas including:
- Access to care — All Coloradans have affordable, accessible and comprehensive oral health care.
- Prevention of tooth decay — Effective programs are available for prevention and early intervention of tooth decay.
- Connections to overall health — Oral health is included as a vital part of overall health.
