2015 Deadlines for Current Grantees
Instructions For New Applicants
All new applicants (not current Dodge grantees) must submit an online inquiry first, which helps us determine whether or not you will be invited to submit a full proposal. Inquiries may be submitted at any time but are due no later than one month prior to the corresponding proposal submission deadline. See the deadlines and instructions in our New Applicants section.
For All Applicants:
- Dodge reserves the right to defer grant proposals to a subsequent grant making cycle.
- Applicants may receive only one Foundation grant within the three annual grant making cycles. (Exceptions may be made for collaborative projects and technical assistance grants.)
- Applying for funding is a highly competitive process. We receive several hundred inquiries and proposals each year, and 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. Due to limited resources, we look for projects and programs that will demonstrate excellence and leverage other work we are currently supporting.
- In addition to the restrictions we list above, we frequently decline inquiries and proposals that duplicate work we are already funding.
