The Trustees of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation recently approved 63 grants totaling more than $3.4 million to support nonprofit organizations in New Jersey dedicated to building creative, sustainable, and informed communities.
“A better New Jersey begins with the people who make each place unique,” said Chris Daggett, Dodge Foundation President and CEO. “At Dodge, the nonprofits we support are dedicated to improving the quality of life for everyone by putting community first. We believe that by working together we can address the complex challenges before us with creativity and innovation to build a better state. ”
The Dodge Foundation awards grants three times a year to arts, education, environment, and media nonprofits. Grant announcements will also be made in July and December.
The majority of grants approved at the March meeting of the Trustees support arts and environment nonprofits. Additional grants awarded support the Foundation’s Morristown, Public Policy and Technical Assistance initiatives.
