Helping You Build a Better Community

In the last decade, The Dayton Foundation and its donors have awarded more than $378 million to worthy causes in Greater Dayton and beyond. These grants help support and promote arts and culture, health, education, human services and other community-building endeavors. We take pride in supporting the work of local nonprofit organizations through our discretionary grants program and through convening regional leadership to discuss innovative ideas and initiatives to help solve important community issues.

The Dayton Foundation provides a variety of services to help strengthen and support your work for the benefit of our region. Our staff is here to help you locate additional grantmaking organizations and resources to ultimately help you help others. Let’s work together to build a better Greater Dayton.
