There are many ways for you to donate to the Foundation. An annual contribution equal to the fee for one restoration is quite common. Many other gifts are received as memorials honoring a deceased Fellow, a loved one, a Mentor, or a friend. The International College of Dentists USA Section Foundation welcomes your support.
