  • The Path Forward: Dodge Foundation Launches New Program Priorities Centered on Racial Justice

    In 2016, the Dodge Foundation began its equity journey in earnest, culminating in a strategic plan centered on a vision for an equitable New Jersey. In 2020, as mobilizations for racial justice swept the country and the pandemic abruptly exposed the devastating impacts of structural racism and inequity on people’s lives, we answered the call of these crises to imagine a new way and then to put action to our words. Now, six years later, we are fully immersed in this work. Building on the lessons learned over the past few years, we are entering into 2023 with a strengthened commitment and launching new program priorities centered on racial justice, which is the focus of the Dodge Foundation going forward.

  • Looking Back to Look Forward: Putting Action to our Words 

    Over the past few years, the Dodge Foundation has been an organization in transformation. We are an organization aspiring to become an antiracist institution. We are an organization working to increasingly center racial equity and justice in all aspects of our work. We are an organization that is listening and learning. What we’ve learned so far will guide us in our work to come.

  • New Look, Bold Vision: Our Commitment to a Just and Equitable New Jersey

    Today, as we continue to live into our commitment to build a just and equitable New Jersey, we are launching a new visual identity and website to help bring our vision of a new way for the Foundation and New Jersey more fully to life.

  • Stronger Together: Dodge Foundation Investing $2.8M in New Jersey’s Recovery and Resiliency

    The past two years have taught us that repairing unjust systems will require well-resourced backing from all of us. Coalition building that mobilizes the power of many toward sustained action has never been more important.  That is why I am pleased to announce a set of Crisis Response Grants and Mission Investments that, together, advance those interrelated goals.
