beyond grantmaking

Generational change begins and grows within communities.

That’s why Dogwood is community-focused in all we do.

We envision a region of small towns, rural communities and urban centers where all residents feel connected, included, productive and proud – where individuals and families build from their roots and can see a future for themselves in the places they call home.

When community residents engage with one another in pursuit of a common vision, great things can happen. Dogwood supports the work of organizations and communities that seek to engage the voices, strengths and assets of all residents to create and pursue a shared path forward to improved wellbeing. We work to bring communities together – locally and regionally – for mutual visioning, collaboration and generational change.
