Chicago, April 25, 2014–The ADA Foundation (ADAF) invites U.S.-based nonprofit organizations that work to improve oral health to apply for a grant through its new Semi-annual Invitational Grant Program. The application deadline is July 31.
The ADAF will consider grant applications from organizations whose projects align with the ADAF’s goal of improving oral health through one of the ADAF’s four mission pillars: Charitable Assistance, Access to Care, Research and Education.
In addition to alignment with the ADAF’s mission, applications will be evaluated based on criteria including clarity of the project description, reasonableness of the work plan and outcomes, the expectation of clear results and measurable outcomes, originality and creativity, presentation of a comprehensive and realistic budget, and other criteria the evaluating committee deems relevant in light of the ADAF mission pillar with which the grant request aligns.
The dollar amount of any grant will depend on the number of applicants, the budget needs presented in the grant request, and the amount of funds available for such misson pillar category at any given time. All ADAF grant awards are within the sole discretion of the ADAF Board of Directors.
Interested organizations should download and review the ADAF Semi-annual Grants Program Guidelines and Application document from www.adafoundation.org and submit their proposal no later than the July deadline.
