Pierce County Dental Foundation
The Foundation's Mission: The Pierce County Dental Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization formed in 2003. The Foundation was started to raise and disperse funds for charitable, educational and scientific purposes. The unique aspect of the Foundation is that all money raised will be distributed exclusively in Pierce County.

Through the generous donations of those who care about the dental health needs in Pierce County, the Foundation has been able to make over $212,475.00 dollars in donations to the following non-profit organizations who are dedicated to access to dental care and education in Pierce County.

PCDF has a goal of raising $1,000,000 for it's endowment fund. The proceeds will be used to support community programs that support access to care, building oral health awareness, and supporting the education of dental health professionals.

September 16-20, 2019 will be the next "A Day for Smiles". Save the date to participate in this event!

To reach this goal, the first annual event: "A Day for Smiles" was held. This is where dentists donate a day of dentistry to the endowment fund. During the week of September 17-21, 2018, Pierce County Dental Society dentists raised $141,483.59. Thank you so much to the following donors:

Leave your Imprint on the Future of Dentistry

Since 2003, the Pierce County Dental Foundation has supported nonprofit organizations dedicated to access to dental care and education. The Pierce County Dental Foundation has created an Endowment that will help sustain that good work into the future.
A reliable income stream will enable the Foundation to concentrate less on raising money and more on what is important - funding critical dental health programs and providing financial support to deserving dental professionals. Please join in this endeavor to ensure a brighter, healthier future for Pierce County.

However you choose to give to the Pierce County Dental Foundation Endowment-through a charitable bequest in a will or trust, a monthly or annual gift, or a periodic donation-your contribution will leave a lasting imprint on the future of dentistry and the citizens of Pierce County.

To pledge your support and to learn more, please contact Cheryl Jenkins at the Pierce County Dental Foundation Endowment at 253.272.9960 or pcds@pcdentists.org
