Please call Michael at 541-497-0020 or Christian at 541-280-4214 to discuss how you can Sponsor A Smile.
Through sponsorships from caring individuals and charitable donations from organizations, we have been able to facilitate sponsorships of kids throughout Oregon. Sponsors can make payments over a 2-year period, usually $125.00 per month.
If you can imagine sponsoring braces and orthodontic treatment for a child in an Oregon or Idaho community, we will connect you with a specific recipient, whom you can follow as they grow into their new self-confidence and unimagined possibilities.
If both the sponsor and the child’s guardians agree, we encourage direct communication between the parties in order to bring as much visibility to the power of your sponsorship.
Although a typical orthodontic treatment now falls in the neighborhood of $6,000 (and more if oral surgery is needed), we have been lucky to work with orthodontists who donate any leftover charges, after your max. $3000 is spent.
Each year Orthodontists donate over $100,000 as in-kind donations. We truly are lucky to be part of their giving strategy. You can either pay upfront or make a $125.00 monthly payment until treatment is complete. Your call.
If you belong to a group of people who would like to sponsor a child together, we are working to develop peer2peer and crowdfunding platform, allowing coworkers, classrooms and extracurricular clubs to fundraise together, using email, social media, and text messaging. It’s really very exciting!
