Project Grants

Project Grants Application

Arcora Foundation is excited to announce a funding opportunity to support oral health projects that increase access to dental care, improve social determinants of health, and/or promote healthy behaviors, particularly within Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color. Applications will be evaluated based on how well the project intends to narrow disparity gaps, particularly within its targeted community.  

The Foundation has up to $250,000 available to fund oral health projects, with project grants of up to $50,000 each. This grant funding is limited to projects that impact indviduals in Washington state. To apply, please complete and submit the grant application form at the bottom of the page. At the end of the grant application, you’ll be asked to upload the Project Budget and Support Template, a W-9, and if available a completed ACH Direct Deposit form (requests for a check will delay payment). These forms can be found in the additional links section below. If you have any issues with uploading, please email forms to Heather Knaplund at hknaplund@arcorafoundation.org. If you would like a copy of your responses emailed to you, click “send me a copy of my responses” before submitting. Applications are due by Friday, December 3, 2021. 

After you submit your request, you will receive a confirmation email from Arcora Foundation. An Arcora Foundation team member will contact you within 10 business days if there are any follow-up questions. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Heather Knaplund at hknaplund@arcorafoundation.org or at 206.528.2337. 

 (NOTE: Arcora Foundation funding cannot be used to pay dental providers for individual dental care or treatment – for example, uncompensated/free care or co-pays.) 

Applicants must be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or similar status. 

Thank you for improving the oral health and well-being of your community.
