NOTE: Please note that PGDF will not make any new grants in 2018 as we prepare for a shift in our organizational infrastructure. We expect to resume our annual open-application grant cycle in 2019.

Established by Hanover Research Founder Peter G. Dodge, PGDF is a philanthropic organization that supports the advancement of new treatments and the dissemination of up-to-date information about alcohol-use disorder (AUD).

Mission Grants

Mission Grants fund work that aligns with our primary mission: helping people lead lives free from the effects of alcohol addiction. First-time applicants may submit proposals for grants of $5,000 to $10,000 during our annual open-application grant cycle. 

Grants for larger initiatives, such as scientific research, are by invitation. These projects are typically initiated by PGDF and pursued in collaboration with the grantee.

Organizations who wish to be considered for these grants may submit a brief letter of inquiry describing the proposed project.

Program Objectives

Through the Mission Grant program, we support initiatives that:

  • Refine alcohol-use disorder (AUD) diagnosis and referral to treatment
  • Share information about the full spectrum of treatment options that exist for AUD
  • Help young people understand alcohol addiction and take action when it affects them
  • Increase and update knowledge about AUD treatment in medical schools and amongst physicians
  • Develop or test new avenues for AUD treatment

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Please note that PGDF’s grant programs provide funds to non-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations only.


  • PGDF does not give grants to individuals or for-profit businesses or organizations.
