Partnership for the Children of San Luis Obispo County is a non-profit 501(c)3 community benefit organization that supports Tolosa Children’s Dental Center. Each year over 5,000 children receive comprehensive, compassionate, quality dental care equal to what any child visiting a private dentist would receive. While a large part our operations are sustained by Medi-Cal dental reimbursements (Denti-Cal), we do have to raise approximately 50¢ for every dollar of care we provide. To ensure continuing operation of Tolosa Children’s Dental Center, Partnership for the Children must raise funds through grant writing, donations and fundraising events to ‘bridge the gap’ between operating expenses and revenue.
You can help support our mission to provide dental care for underserved children in San Luis Obispo County by making a tax-deductible contribution to Partnership for the Children by donating today.
To learn more about our fundraising efforts visit our Events page, and to find out how we put your donations to use, read our annual report Happy Smiles 2016.
Thank you to all our major supporters this year!
