What is the LDA Foundation (LDAF)?

The LDA Foundation is the charitable arm of the Louisiana Dental Association (LDA). Currently, it is comprised of the former LDA charities known as the Relief Fund, the CE Hebert Continuing Education Trust and the Assistance Fund.

What is the mission of the LDA Foundation?

The mission of the Foundation is to enhance the oral health of our State by providing funding for clinical research, education, scholarships and access to care programs, as well as providing financial assistance to dental professionals and their families who are in need.

Is my LDAF contribution tax deductible?

The LDA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation registered in the State of Louisiana. All contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Why does the LDAF need my contribution?

The LDA Foundation hosts LaMOM charitable dental clinics (Louisiana Mission of Mercy) and we need your support and volunteer efforts! Visit www.lamissionofmercy.org for more info.

It also offers disaster relief grants and funds and access grants for access-to-care related events. Since 2005, the Foundation has also provided financial assistance to many LDA members who had property damage as a result of devastating hurricanes and other weather related disasters!

For LDA members, it is as easy as checking a box on your dues statement or calling the LDA office at (800) 388-6642.
The LDA Foundation is committed to helping support all aspects of our mission statement for the future. We will endeavor to develop new avenues for members to participate in charitable giving, including endowments.
