Dart Foundation

  Grant Amount: Not Specified


The Dart Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations (must have a successful track record of at least three years) for projects that support:
  • Public school education, with an emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) as well as career and technical training in the skilled trades. Most grants directly fund the public schools in one of the specified geographic funding areas.
  • Community Service organizations in one of the specified geographic funding areas that otherwise meet the funding criteria and have a strong tangible or capital improvement need
The Foundation prefers to support projects that:
  • Fund tangible needs such as equipment, capital improvements and reusable materials that provide a long-term impact and enhance an organization’s effectiveness .
  • Serve a large number of people.
  • Reach a broad segment of the community, as opposed to limited sub-set of the population .
  • Provide a plan for independent sustainability, and do not require continued funding from the Foundation year after year
  • Most projects are not eligible for funding from the Foundation on an on-going basis.
  • Are independently sustainable or “stand-alone” projects.
Grants are focused in the immediate vicinities of specifically identified communities across the United States.

In order to pursue more efficient grantmaking, the Board has moved away from quarterly competitive grant cycles. They now proactively reach out to local organizations in thrir giving communities and find ways to partner.  

However, a funding inquiry may be submitted at any time. Please be sure to review the Foundation priorities and annual reports carefully prior to submitting an inquiry.
