Dear ADI Fellows,
I am pleased to write this brief message to you on behalf of the Foundation. You, as ADI Fellows, are aware of the many projects that are funded year in and year out by the charitable 501(c)3 branch of the Academy. These projects are summarized on the web site under the “History of Projects Funded.” The ability of the Foundation Board to distribute funds for projects rests primarily on donations. These donations come from you the Fellows of the Academy, support from our corporate sponsors, the silent auction occasionally held at the USA Convocation and to some degree, designated money from the endowment account.
The Foundation Board is comprised of Fellow dentists, as well as volunteer members from the corporate community. The advice we receive from the corporate Board members has been and will continue to be instrumental in our ability to function optimally.
I would like to mention that your donations are appreciated at any time and in any amount that you are comfortable with. It would be a great start to next year’s grant cycle to receive some early contributions. May I remind you that you can also donate online at [Donate online]
I will be updating my communications to you on a quarterly basis. In my next message to you I will expand my thoughts, so as to inform you of the continuing efforts of the Foundation to grow and protect our endowment for the future.
Thomas L. Brink, DDS, FADI
ADI Foundation President
