Through our Open Call application process, we seek to engage with and learn about racial justice-focused organizations working across the state of New Jersey.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our first-ever “Open Call” for racial justice organizations that have not previously had access to the Dodge Foundation. Through this process, we seek to engage with and learn about racial justice-focused organizations working across the state of New Jersey.
We expect to distribute $500,000 with grants ranging from approximately $15,000 to $75,000 to 10-20 organizations depending on the organizations and the number of applications we receive.

Our application has two stages, and we expect the entire process to take three to six months from submission to final decision.
Stage 1: Application (May 2 – June 20; application is now closed)
Complete our simplified online application to help us understand how your organization addresses the priorities outlined in Our Work. We expect the application to take approximately 60-90 minutes to complete. Organizations will be notified if they move to the next stage within six weeks.
Stage 2: Conversation (July 7 – August 31)
If you are selected to advance to stage two, you will be asked to schedule a virtual meeting to further discuss your work with our Program Team. You do not need to prepare any additional materials for these conversations. We expect all conversations will be completed by August 31.
All applicants will be notified of the final decision by late Fall 2023.
