The Office of Development is responsible for seeking and acquiring charitable gifts to support dental students, patient care, and faculty/staff.  Donations are received and managed by the East Carolina University Medical & Health Sciences Foundation Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to support the ECU Division of Health Sciences.  

Here’s a Q&A that will give you more information. Ms. Kristen Ward, School of Dental Medicine Director of Development, will be glad to answer questions about how you can support our school. Your support is very important to our mission of educating primary care dentists who will help meet the oral health needs of rural and underserved North Carolinians.
