What is an automatic recurring donation? This is a monthly gift that is made automatically each month from a debit/credit card. Electing to donate via our monthly giving program is a popular way to split up a significant yearly gift into more manageable monthly donations.

Show your support of The ADHA Institute for Oral Health, the only national foundation for the important work of dental hygienists, by making recurring donations through a monthly pledge!

Note, you can change, or cancel, your pledge at any time! You will always receive an e-mailed receipt of your donation. Additionally, you will receive a tax acknowledgment when making the pledge with your contribution amount.

Why I Donate

“I donate to the Institute for Oral Health Foundation as it is the only national foundation serving the Dental Hygiene Profession. I am confident that my donations supporting research projects enable ADHA to continue to build Dental Hygiene’s body of knowledge which is essential for us to be recognized as a profession.

The flexibility to donate throughout the calendar year is accommodating, as well as the donor privilege to designate my gifts for supporting scholarships, community service grants, research, and/or the greatest need annually.- ADHA Past President, Marge Green, RDH, MS, FADHA”
