Learn more about our work and our strategic program priorities focused on racial justice.
Our intention is to create and build meaningful and lasting relationships with our nonprofit partners. We believe in providing organizations and their leaders flexible resources that allows for innovation, imagination, and increased organizational stability and freedom to self-determine the best path forward.
In our grantmaking we strive to:
We know that there are many organizations doing important and impactful work, contributing to the vibrancy of our state. However, we also know that not every organization will receive funding under our vision and priorities.
Pathways to be Considered for Funding:
The primary way we connect with grantees is by proactively identifying and inviting those that are programmatically aligned to apply for our funding. Additionally, we want to create an open and accessible process to learn about organizations doing racial justice work and provide funding where and when possible.
Current Dodge Foundation grantees and other organizations who are part of our strategic grantmaking will receive our outreach to apply. Requests will be reviewed three times a year. These organizations will receive a link to the Grants Portal from the Program Team.
From May to June 2023, we also had an open call to give new organizations who have not had access to the Dodge Foundation an opportunity to connect with the team and explore alignment. That opportunity is currently closed.
