With Change Comes a New Challenge!
It’s hard to believe summer is already over. It’s also hard to believe that 15 years ago, this Foundation was just an idea. Thanks to a lot of creative thinking, hard work and amazing generosity, we’ve accomplished so much in trying to elevate the level of education in pediatric dentistry; not just in our training programs, but also through support of continuing education programs at the CSPD Annual Meeting and our highly recognized leadership intern programs.

All that we do would not be possible without our corporate sponsors and most importantly, you, the membership of CSPD. Your generous donations every year have resulted in more than $1,500,000 being invested in a growing array of programs aimed at making the profession stronger.

What’s New for 2015-2016?
The Foundation now has a redesigned web page – log on to - It’s easy to navigate and view our numerous accomplishments with up to date news and grant opportunities with an easy on-line application process. The Foundation is also inviting applications for research and presentation travel grants.

Your Foundation will once again be a major sponsor at the CSPD Annual Meeting in Napa. We’ll be sponsoring a symposium on behavior guidance, which you won’t want to miss.

With change comes a new challenge! So many of you have made 
your annual gifts in support of the Foundation by including it in your Annual Dues payment. Unfortunately, now that CSPD/WSPD dues billing is being included in your AAPD statement, you will lose this convenient way to give. Please watch for our mailing and emails, which will offer easy ways to submit your contributions via mail or the Internet. All of our work depends on your continued support! You can also visit our website and join your colleagues in this important cause with just a couple of clicks. All of our work depends on your continued support!

For those who consistently donate – THANK YOU!! If you are new 
to giving to the Foundation, your additional support will allow us to sustain existing programs and do even more for you and those who will follow you in this great profession.

In closing, I want to wish every one of you a happy and healthy 
holiday season and New Year.
