Share This:

The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation has approved 63 grants worth $2.3 million to arts and arts education organizations, the majority of its latest round of awards. In all, the Morristown, New Jersey-based foundation announced 94 grants totaling $4 million for programs in the arts, environment, education and media. “We have seen time and again and especially in these months following Hurricane Sandy that the nonprofit sector plays a critical role in delivering services and programs that help people live better lives here in New Jersey,” Dodge president and CEO Chris Daggett said in a statement.

The Dodge board awarded 41 grants totaling $1.6 million to mostly New Jersey arts organizations. The largest grants of $125,000 are given to the Newark Museum and the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey in Madison. McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton and Morris Arts in Morristown each receive $75,000.

First-time winners in the arts category include Ramapo College of New Jersey ($15,000) and the Trenton Museum Society ($7,500). The majority of the foundation’s 26 education grants support art projects and organizations, including $60,000 to the New Jersey Charter Schools Association to help it bring arts programs to its member schools and $30,000 to VHI Save the Music Foundation to restore music education to two Trenton middle schools.
