Our Foundation Fund-Raising Drive Goes On
Vice President C.F. Larry Barrett
For your generosity during our last solicitation for funds, we give our heartfelt thanks. In preamble we outlined the Foundation's financial situation, which has begun to restrict the income that the Foundation may use for scholarships and international grants. Owing to current economics, a $1500 dental school scholarship does not go very far any more, nor does a grant's funds stretch to cover all the services to which we all would like to contribute. The only solution is to increase the invested principal to generate more interest to grant away the income. The alternative is simply to approve fewer grants and make less of an impact on the world's dental needs.
As global leaders of the world's dental profession, we have a certain responsibility to attend to the dire dental needs suffered on our planet. If not our Fellows, then who should do this? Not only do we make these international grants to aid existing groups in the field of dentistry, but we encourage our Sections around the world to initiate local programs as well.
The Foundation has provided several opportunities to contribute money that serve individual needs. (1) A straight tax-deductible offering; (2) Naming a scholarship after yourself or another at your favorite alma mater; (3) Achieving a Robert Shira Fellowship Award for every $1000 contributed; (4) A Legacy Program to continue your charity through a will-directed program; (5) Corporate donations, like Den-Mat has done; and (6) Contributions made in funds, stocks, bonds, or real property. For questions regarding the various means of advancing the Foundation's ability to work on the world's dental needs, contact Foundation Treasurer William Kort at 6 Brighton Lane, Oak Brook, Illinois, 60523, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following Fellows have been honored by achieving Robert Shira Fellowship status:
Three additional scholarships have been awarded at the University of Iowa School of Dentistry in the name of James M. Brophy, Sr. For a $1000 contribution you can establish your scholarship at your school and let the Foundation do the work arranging it. Your scholarship is reported annually in the dental school's honor day program.
