// overview

The Baylor Oral Health Foundation is a non-profit corporation created in 1993, chartered by the State of Texas to receive, manage, invest and disburse funds to Texas A&M University College of Dentistry, which is a part of Texas A&M University Health Science Center and an academic unit of Texas A&M University.

The foundation’s mission is to “provide Texas A&M University College of Dentistry with funds and support to sustain institutional preeminence through excellence in students, faculty, research and outreach.” It does this by managing and raising private dollars for world-class faculty, leading edge research, academic programs and scholarships.

Indeed, private support helps the College go beyond the limits of state funding to provide innovative and high quality programs for thousands of students and patients whose lives are touched by the College. The foundation accomplishes its management mission by providing asset management for endowment and quasi-endowment funds, which benefit the College; and managing agency funds for specific departments and divisions of the College in accordance with donor wishes.

Although Texas A&M  College of Dentistry and the Texas A&M Health Science Center strive to maximize resources from state appropriations, grants and contracts, there are still unmet needs throughout the College. Private gifts to the foundation and the management of those gifts will help ensure the College maintains its preeminence and position of excellence in the years to come. At this site, you will find information about our activities and how we operate. Thank you for your interest.


The Internal Revenue Service recognizes the Baylor Oral Health Foundation as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Contributions to the foundation by individuals, corporations, organizations and other foundations are qualified for tax deduction.
