Who We Are
The Dr. Roy James Rinehart Foundation was established to honor and recognize the achievements and contributions of the late Dr. Rinehart to the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, dental education and research, and the dental profession. We perpetuate Dr. Rinehart’s legacy by financially supporting grants, scholarships, fellowships, professorships and special projects that promote and advance the oral health of the general public through teaching, research, service and clinical care.
The mission of the Dr. Roy J. Rinehart Memorial Foundation is to raise and provide financial resources for UMKC School of Dentistry to support students primarily through scholarships, faculty and staff primarily through endowments and professional development, and other strategic programs of interest as voted by the Board of Directors of the Rinehart Foundation.
