The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation
Grants are limited to organizations located in Michigan. The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation Trustees carefully consider proposals submitted and look for programs where their contribution can be leveraged. Organizations requesting funding for a new program should be sure that they have planned for that program’s future self-sufficiency.
A SIGNATURE GIFT
Since being established in 1899, as a home for Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow and family, the 110-acre Dow Gardens now welcomes more than 200,000 guests per year. Visitors are invited to leave the pathway and explore the uniquely-designed landscape, take a tour of the historic Pines Home, participate in one of many hands-on educational programs, and discover beautiful art and music in a relaxed setting. Dow Gardens is comprised of an Estate Garden, Exploration Garden, and Whiting Forest, which takes visitors four stories high to stroll along the nation’s longest canopy walk.
The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation announced that its board of trustees named Macauley Whiting Jr. as President Emeritus and elected Ruth A. Doan as President.
