    Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation


    The Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation is focused on several populations of particularly vulnerable children and also supports organizations that enable entrepreneurs to build sustainable economic communities for their children and families.

Many of the programs supported by the Foundation focus on ensuring that children are safe and have access to education and care.

    Additional Information

    The Foundation does not fund orphanages or other types of homes that benefit only the children that live within them, nor does the Foundation fund schools that only benefit the children that attend them. Only on rare occasions, and after much discussion, does the Foundation fund such institutions when they are developing a program model intended to replicated at other institutions and have benefit to children beyond their specific institution.

    • Grants to non-US organizations or any organization that does not have proof of current IRS tax-exempt status.
    • Grants, scholarships or loans to individuals.
    • Grants to private foundations.
    • Grants that are inconsistent with an organizations charitable purposes.
    • Grants that seek to support political activities or attempt to influence specific legislation through direct lobbying.
    • Grants for doctoral study or research.
    • Grants for sponsorship of, or travel to, conferences or events.
    • Grants for films, videos or publications.
    • Donations to annual campaigns or fundraising events.
