Our Recent Environment Grants

January 6, 2009

We’re pleased to share that the Dodge Foundation Board of Trustees recently approved more than $4 million in grants to environmental organizations across New Jersey. Sixty-three organizations received $4,171,000 (55 organizations at the Foundation’s November Board meeting, and eight others that were previously awarded grants in 2008).

You can find details about Dodge’s environmental grantmaking here, and details about the grantees and the grants they received here.
