NDA State and local chapters and NDA auxiliary groups are invited to participate in the National Dental Association Foundation matching program. The NDAF will match your scholarship efforts up to $5000 on a yearly basis. Individual students shall not be able to receive more that $1000 in matching funds.
There are two ways to match funds. If a chapter scholarship gives a scholarship to a student for $1000, that scholarship can be matched for an additional $1000 for a total scholarship of $2000. Or, if a chapter has $1000 to give a scholarship and two recipients, then the $1000 match will be applied so that each recipient will receive a $1000 award.
The intent of the matching program is to touch as many students as possible. All matching funds donated through the Foundation are matched dollar for dollar donations and are not subjected to any administrative fees.
