Delta Dental Community Care Foundation Awards Nearly $950,000 in Grants to Pennsylvania Nonprofits

The Delta Dental Community Care Foundation has given grants to 31 organizations, totaling nearly $950,000, in Pennsylvania to provide relief amid the COVID-19 pandemic. These unrestricted grants were intended to help the Foundation’s nonprofit partners continue to provide vital services to the most vulnerable members of their communities.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been a one-two punch for many of our Pennsylvania-based nonprofit partners by increasing the needs for their services while reducing their fundraising capability and ability to rely on volunteers,” said Kenzie Ferguson, vice president of Foundation and corporate social responsibility for Delta Dental of California. “We made the decision to allocate nearly all of our 2020 funding to support those fighting on the front lines of COVID-19 and will continue to be a resource to our communities as this pandemic continues.”
