Delta dental grant

Grant will help empower people and transform lives through clinical operations support

Delta Dental grant facilitates gift of sight in Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 23, 2023 – Eversight, a nonprofit eye bank dedicated to restoring sight and preventing blindness worldwide through donation, transplantation and research, has been awarded a $5,000 grant from Delta Dental to support clinical operations in Michigan. 

“Delta Dental is committed to the whole health of the communities we serve—including eye health,” said Carmen Argersinger, Head of Corporate Citizenship & Community Affairs, Delta Dental. “Offering the best vision care for our customers and their families is just the beginning of that commitment. Partnering with nonprofit organizations like Eversight, allows us to reach beyond our customers and provide life-changing care to individuals throughout the state.” 

Eversight is the only nonprofit organization recovering and providing donated cornea tissue for transplant in Michigan.  

In 2022, Eversight worked with 1,760 Michigan donors and their families who gave the gift of sight for transplantation, research and education. Delta Dental’s gift will enable up to 20 Michigan donors to give the gift of sight. Because one person can donate both corneas, this grant may help up to 40 people to receive a life-changing cornea transplant. 

“Eversight’s purpose is to empower people and transform lives,” said Becky Harris, Philanthropy Director, Foundations & Corporations, Eversight. “Delta Dental’s generous gift will allow us to do just that. We will be able to serve more Michiganders with their support of clinical operations in the state.” 

As the nation’s leading provider of dental insurance, one of Delta Dental’s core values is community responsibility which is demonstrated by championing initiatives that enhance the health and well-being of the people in their communities. Delta Dental further fulfills its nonprofit mission through its community relations program, supporting initiatives like cornea transplantation that enhance quality of life.
