Serve a Smile
Minnesota Alliance With Youth and Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation are pleased to announce the 13th annual Serve a Smile mini-grant program. Through the generosity of Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation, over $25,000 in mini-grant funding will be made available to Minnesota youth-led service/service-learning projects that address important oral health or health issues. Mini-grant awards of up to $1000 will support youth affiliated with schools and youth-serving community organizations in Minnesota, offering young people essential funds as they envision ways to create healthier schools and communities.
In 2016, Delta Dental of Minnesota Foundation, in collaboration with Minnesota Alliance With Youth and Minnesota FCCLA, awarded almost $30,000 in annual youth service grants and in-kind dental hygiene supplies to 31 sites in 26 communities. These competitive grants are awarded through Delta Dental’s Serve a Smile grant program to support youth-led service projects that address important oral health and overall health issues. The program provides young people with funds to create healthier schools and communities. For more information contact Annie Himmelsteib at firstname.lastname@example.org.
