Northeast Delta Dental supports organizations and programs that improve the lives of community members within our tri-state geographic footprint.
Funding requests are accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis; and, usually, you will receive a decision six to eight weeks after submission. You will receive an automated response to confirm successful submission.
Typically, one gift will be given to a nonprofit organization per calendar year. If renewed funding is desired in a new calendar year, a new application must be submitted. Please note, a commitment to support in one year does not guarantee that we will be able to provide the same support the following year. We are committed to supporting as many community organizations and events every year and this policy ensures we are maximizing the impact of available funding.
While organizations may apply for either full or partial funding of a particular program or project, we are most likely to support a program that has other funders, showing that it has a broad base of community support and is likely to be sustainable.
Northeast Delta Dental community investments range widely in size. When applying for sponsorship support of an event, it is helpful to see a variety of sponsorship levels and associated sponsorship benefits at each giving level.

Because Northeast Delta Dental must comply with Delta Dental Plans Association service mark and brand protocols, your organization must adhere strictly to usage guidelines we supply as we send logos when logo recognition is a sponsorship benefit. Logos are sent electronically by the External Affairs department at Northeast Delta Dental, and no other sources are sanctioned. You will be required to email a sample of any promotional item to our graphic designer for review and approval before ordering. The strength of our brand is built on consistent, correct use. If our logo use guidelines are not followed, this will be a factor in the consideration of future funding requests. Please also use our name correctly, without abbreviation: “Northeast Delta Dental.”
