"Whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness -- great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation, and great joy." - Jim Rohn
The AAE Foundation exists to perpetuate excellence for the specialty of endodontics and its practitioners. It works to ensure the specialty’s place at the forefront of the dental health arena through support to research and education. Our vision is quality oral health by preserving the natural dentition through endodontic therapy.
The AAE Foundation seeks to improve oral health by securing contributions, shepherding resources and sharing grant funds that support research, generate new knowledge and enhance endodontic education.
Integrity, Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Impartiality, Prudence, Accountability.
The Foundation, which was incorporated in 1966, is the philanthropic arm of the AAE. It is a 501(c)3 charity. Over the years, its mission and activities have evolved. In 1994, AAE directors and Foundation trustees collaborated to restructure the Foundation’s governance and to initiate an endowment campaign. The new organizational design aligned the Association’s priorities to the Foundation’s mission and has been an unqualified success. Today, the Foundation provides the specialty with resources to address needs, meet challenges and realize dreams for the future.
