In 2001 a donation of $2,500 was sent to the Florida Dental Health Foundation to establish the West Coast District Dental Association (WCDDA) Fund. The WCDDA Fund is a donor advised fund administered through the Florida Dental Health Foundation and it is through this partnership with the FDHF that the WCDDA Fund receives guidance, a tax-exempt status as a 501c (3) charitable organization and educational foundation, and administrative support.
Would you like to make a contribution?
The WCDDA Fund grows with support from the membership of the WCDDA through individual contributions and money raised by various WCDDA sponsored activities. Participation in WCDDA Fund activities assures growth and longevity of the fund, provides a charitable outlet, and guarantees success of all events. Contributions must be clearly marked and designated to the WCDDA Fund. It is advised to contact your tax consultant to determine if your donation is tax deductible. All contributions go directly to the WCDDA Fund with the exception of 5% designated to the Florida Dental Health Foundation to cover administrative costs. WCDDA Fund donations support local programs, students and “hometown” ventures promoting a positive image of dentistry to the public. The WCDDA Fund serves as a liaison between the dental community and various programs geared towards the betterment of dental education and the advancement of dental programs.
The WCDDA Fund is overseen by the WCDDA Fund Committee which approves all requests for assistance. These requests are forwarded to the Florida Dental Health Foundation Board for final approval and distribution of funds.
