A Force for Good

Delta Dental of Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana and the Delta Dental Foundation (DDF) are committed to building healthy, smart, vibrant communities—in good times, and in bad.

It is our purpose. It is our passion. It is a point of pride.

Every year we celebrate our corporate giving and philanthropy, and we take note of the difference we make in the communities where we do business.

In 2020, we are doing that—and more.

We are looking back at the impact we had in 2019. And we are facing forward, knowing that the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed serious health inequities and shown that access to education, health services and technology is woefully inadequate for far too many.

It will no doubt affect how, what and where we give in the years to come.

Together, Delta Dental and the DDF contributed nearly $10 million to nonprofits, and to health, education and community organizations in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana last year, bringing our total giving to almost $40 million since 2012.

And our staff recorded 2,122 volunteer hours in 2019.

In 2020, we expect to dedicate even more.

Our work directly benefits nearly 1 million people annually. But thanks to our presence and our partnerships, millions more also enjoy better places to live, work and play.

VIBRANT, our digital corporate citizenship and philanthropy report, puts a human face on the numbers and reinforces that our purpose really is all about making life better for people.

That’s what we mean when we say Delta Dental, together with our customers and partners, is a force for good.
