About this funder:




The Arthur R. Dubs Foundation was formed in 1996 to honor and perpetuate the legacy of Arthur R. Dubs, a genuine outdoorsman, filmmaker and philanthropist.

Responsive Grants

We view grant awards as a partnership and are excited to learn about your work; eager to partner with organizations whose primary purpose assist us in achieving our mission; and optimistic that together we can improve our communities for generations to come.

The Arthur R. Dubs Foundation is in a transitional period, and we appreciate your patience as we prepare to celebrate our 20th Anniversary of giving and position ourselves to engage at a deeper level with non-profit organizations. At this time, our grant guidelines are very fluid so we encourage applicants to review these guidelines often prior to submission.
