Our Work

Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation supports, centers, and connects communities and changemakers who are addressing the root causes and repair of structural racism and inequity in New Jersey.

We envision a just and equitable New Jersey, where people of all races and communities have equal access to opportunities and can thrive and realize their full potential on their own terms.

To achieve this vision, the Dodge Foundation directs our time, energy, and resources toward strategies that address the root causes–and repair–of structural racism and inequity.

We invest in and take guidance from networks, movements, organizations, and leaders who are closest to the harms of injustice and who have been historically excluded from investment and opportunity, especially communities of color.

Through grants, sector capacity-building and other critical investments, the Dodge Foundation resources changemakers to transform New Jersey into a just and equitable state. Through recent grantmaking initiatives to Imagine a New Way and build Momentum towards a just and equitable New Jersey, our learning is already translating into action and moving us closer to realizing the vision that guides us.
