Our new initiatives

At Delta Dental of Colorado, commitment to community is in our DNA. We prioritize doing the right thing and finding ways to make our communities thrive. Since March of 2020, much of our work has focused on the challenges Coloradans have faced from the COVID-19 pandemic, and this shaped much of our grant-making and community investment. 

During this period, we’ve also been asking questions about our direction forward and what it means to be an oral-health advocate and funder. The world is different now, and our grant-making and community engagement efforts must evolve. We made a significant strategic shift at the Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation to support the mission of elevating the well-being of all Coloradans by advancing oral-health equity. We are excited about this new chapter and look forward to partnering with you. Read a full overview from our executive director, Adeeb Khan.

2021 grant opportunity

At Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation, we believe every person deserves a healthy mouth regardless of life circumstances. As an organization guided by equity, we also understand that every community has unique assets, needs, and priorities. We want to understand what your community needs to be healthy. Together we can address community needs, implement activities to improve oral health, and influence long-term change.

We are currently accepting grant applications from Colorado-based nonprofit organizations whose activities strongly align to our prevention and place-based access to care focus areas. We encourage organizations to outline oral health disparities in their local communities and propose strategies to address them.

Grant applications for traditional methods as well as unproven concepts are encouraged. We will consider funding requests ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 per year, for up to three years. We want to hear from you!
