In August of 2017 KCDC mourned the passing of our leader, Dr. Richard Marias. Dr. Marias was a founding member of the Kids' Community Dental Clinic, as well as the President of our Board of Directors and a tireless professional volunteer.  He has been sorely missed by our staff, patients, and the thousands of people he touched through his lifelong work and philanthropic efforts.  Dr. Marias, while always grateful for the funding we have received from numerous grants and foundations, was well aware that these funds were dedicated solely to specific dental needs and supplies. He was always concerned about raising enough money, as he put it, "to keep the lights on."  We are pleased to present The Richard Marias Memorial Fund, which will be dedicated to specifically targeting our administrative and operational needs. ​Your donation in his honor enables us to continue Dr. Marias' work and aspirations to enable all children to achieve their full potential.  We thank you for your kindness.
