The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation supports leadership, innovation, and collaboration for a better New Jersey.

For nearly 40 years, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation has nurtured leaders, ideas, and institutions which transcend self interest and promote a sustainable future. We focus on issues critical to our home state of New Jersey, and organizations that have a direct and meaningful impact here.

We believe that philanthropy includes not only providing resources, but also connecting leaders across sectors, sharing expertise, and promoting collaboration to help build movements for change around important issues.

We fund Arts, Education, Environment and Media initiatives that are innovative and promote collaboration and community-driven decision making.

We listen to the needs of the nonprofit sector by offering sustained and comprehensive technical assistance, and we pay careful attention to the public policy environment in which our grantees operate.

We work with nonprofit, community, government, and business leaders to imagine a better New Jersey.
