Global Visionary Fund


Mission Statement: The International College of Dentists’ Global Visionary Fund supports and funds humanitarian and educational oral health care programs and initiatives around the world, especially in developing communities where the needs are greatest.


The ICD Global Visionary Fund (GVF)  is a tax-advantaged (IRS 501c3) charitable fund created by the Council for the purpose of collecting and distributing monies in support of initiatives in dental education and humanitarian oral health care. In time, the Fund will allow the Council to respond to requests from ICD Fellows and other volunteers for financial assistance with their charitable works around the world, especially those of the ICD Regions. We hope that you can find room in your charitable gifting to include the ICD Global Visionary Fund. Together we can accomplish great things.
