The Geradine R. Dodge Foundation’s weekly round-up of news and stories highlighting the work of nonprofits dedicated to making New Jersey great, plus great ideas, inspiring reads and philanthropy trends.
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.
The Dodge Foundation is excited to welcome Malcolm McClain as Program Officer, growing the Program Team’s capacity and ability to support our partners. Malcolm brings practical programmatic experience and deep research skills that will advance our vision of a more just and equitable New Jersey.
