Think your work might be a good fit for Dodge funding?
The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation develops grantmaking strategies in each of our focus areas to meet specific goals and leverage other work we are already supporting. We encourage you to carefully review our program guidelines and upcoming deadlines page to determine if your work might be a good fit for Dodge funding.
You are invited to outline your idea and inquire about the possibility of funding through our online letter of inquiry form, due one month prior to the proposal deadline. You will receive an automatic acknowledgement of receipt and your inquiry will be directed to the appropriate staff for review.
The Foundation will notify you within two weeks of the application deadline whether you will be invited to submit a full proposal or if we are unable to consider your funding request at this time.
Submitting an inquiry or a proposal which falls within our guidelines does not guarantee that we will either request or fund a proposal from your organization. In addition to other considerations, we frequently decline inquiries that duplicate work we are already funding.
Please note that we can only consider a very limited amount of requests due to restrictions in our available funds.
If you have any questions, please refer to our FAQs prior to contacting the Foundation.
