In This Section


For more than 40 years, the Dodge Foundation has made nearly $450 million in grants to nonprofits. With each grant, there is a story. Sometimes they are small success stories, like how our grant helped an organization reach out to more students, or helped connect more people with their natural surroundings. 

But sometimes they are big stories with far-reaching impact, like how our grant helped launch Sustainable Jersey, a statewide initiative that municipalities are now clamoring to participate in. 

We invite you to explore some of those stories here, and we hope you return from time to time — and on our blog as well — to see how we’re imagining a better New Jersey.
