Ethix has recently entered into a fundraising partnership with the Los Angeles Dental Society to support its doctor members with great merchant services and rates, and create a new donation revenue stream for the Society to benefit its members and the communities they serve.
The Los Angeles Dental Society is a component of the California and American Dental Associations. They are dedicated to helping people in the Los Angeles area find dental care that’s right for them. LADS offers a comprehensive search engine that will help you find dental care by geographical area, area of specialty, and more.
The Los Angeles Dental Society serves the City of Los Angeles and the cities of Bell, Bell Gardens, Beverly Hills, Cudahy, Downey, Hollywood, Huntington Park, Leimert Park, Lynwood, Maywood, South Gate, Watts, West Hollywood, and City of Commerce with over 1,200 Dentist members.
The Los Angeles Dental Society Foundation exists to provide public benefit programs for the Society. It is a separate, 501(c)(3), charitable nonprofit that provides funds for a spectrum of programs and services that promote the oral health of the dental profession and the local Los Angeles community. Programs include scholarships for USC dental students, grants to oral health community clinics, and in-kind donations to oral health organizations.
Often when we think of non-profits we think of service organizations which do make up the bulk of non-profits organizations. There are however a significant number of Trade Association non-profits that serve both businesses and consumers in numerous ways. LADS is a great example of one such organization.
