The Development Fund

The Development Fund offers you the best opportunity to advance our mission at the dental school, as it allows your gift to be flexibly directed to areas of immediate need. Your gift to this Fund will genuinely help the dental school continue to achieve national recognition for excellence in contemporary dental education.

As state support to dental education decreases, private contributions to the School of Dental Medicine afford us the opportunity to achieve tremendous success in our efforts to continuously improve the quality of dental education we provide our students. Only through your generosity can we continue to help our dental students develop into excellent dental practitioners. Please support the School of Dental Medicine Development Fund, and help us continue to provide our students with the best clinical dental education in the country.

Collectively, alumni contributions to the SIU dental school provide us with the resources necessary to continue to raise the bar. For example, your gift may be used to expand the dental education curriculum and/or add new dental technologies to help our students better meet the needs of their patients when they graduate and become dental professionals. Your gift may also be used to extend an emergency loan to a student, upgrade classroom equipment, and/or provide summer research opportunities to students.

In these and many other ways, your gift to the School of Dental Medicine Development Fund will help our students continue to achieve success in their dental education. We encourage your thoughtful consideration.
