All new applicants (not current Dodge grantees) must submit an electronic Letter of Inquiry form and be invited to apply. Letters of Inquiry may be submitted at any time but are due no later than one month prior to the corresponding proposal submission deadline. See the Letter of Inquiry deadlines in our New Applicants section.
Proposals will be reviewed year-round and may be submitted during the grant making cycle that best serves the organization doing the work.
- 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 Letters of Inquiry and proposals each year, and submitting an LOI 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 Letters of Inquiry that duplicate work we are already funding.
