Paul G. Duke Foundation

Grantmaking efforts at the Paul G. Duke Foundation focus upon programs benefiting children, young adults, and the family in the Miami County area (includes contiguous counties); with limited grantmaking in the central Ohio area. Grants are made in the areas of the arts, education, health, and social services and are made for both general and specific project support, including seed money for innovative programs. Grants for capital projects are made in the Miami County area only. The Duke Foundation has frequently made challenge grants for projects to encourage matching gifts or additional funding from other donors.

Grant Application Instructions -- The Paul G. Duke Foundation has two grantmaking cycles per year. The application deadlines are the first working day in April and August. Decisions for these application cycles are announced by the end of June and November. In order for an application to be complete, the organization must submit eight (8) complete sets of the full proposal consisting of a cover sheet and proposal requirements as detailed in the Paul G. Duke Foundation Application Packet. All copies of the proposal should be on 3-hole punch paper and double sided is appreciated. Applicants should contact our staff via e-mail 60 to 90 days in advance of the application deadline to discuss your proposal.

Only those applications following the official application process can be accepted. For those unfamiliar with the foundation’s application process, you are strongly encouraged to attend one of the grant workshops that are held throughout the year. These workshops offer an overview of the grant application processes for all supporting foundations and The Columbus Foundation. Consult the community events calendar for specific dates and registration.
