The Dory Foundation aims to make starting a charity as cool and rewarding as launching a startup. Fast, efficient and ambitious charities are rare. That is why we want to support them and ensure securing funding is not an obstacle to their impact.

Whether you’re looking to kick off a new charity or need a boost to grow your existing organization, they want to help.

This opportunity is designed for:

  • Individuals under 25 who have impactful project ideas but lack the funds to get started.
  • Those who are ready to launch a charity but are financially tied up with day-to-day jobs.
  • Charities in operation that are ready to expand their work but need financial support to do so.

Dory Foundation is a private foundation headquartered in the United States. They currently plan to distribute 2$ million.


The Dory Foundation is giving out three types of grants:

  • Seed Grants
    • Are you trying to start a charity but depend on a normal job out of financial necessity? Charity Seed Grants are typically small, and low-effort.
  • Normal Charity Grants
    • Grants between $10k-250k for charities doing impactful work in any domain
  • Individual Project Grants
    • If you’re under 25 and want to work on a cool project but aren’t economically able to fund it, apply.

They also connect grantees with other funders and provide various forms of essential support to help you succeed.
