Giving back through life-changing experiences.
The Peter W. Doerken Foundation supports 501(c)(3) organizations that align with our mission and have passionate leaders, are community based and offer potential for systemic, sustained change, including the possibility of replication.
Most of our grant applicants are by invitation only. However, if you feel your organization shares our mission you may submit a brief letter of inquiry by email.
The Peter W. Doerken Foundation is a private charitable foundation dedicated to supporting organizations with an entrepreneurial spirit and focused on sustainable, community-based solutions that promote the health, well-being, and prosperity of women, youth, and their local environment.
The Peter W. Doerken Foundation supports change through policy and advocacy. The Foundation stays abreast on the issues that affect the communities we serve.
We work collectively with policymakers, community leaders and other grantmakers, among others, to engage and partner together for greater impact.
Our vision is to be a resource for organizations that empower and improve the lives of women and youth to help them achieve long-term, positive change, both for themselves and others.
We believe that through thoughtful, strategic support we can make a difference in the lives of women and youth by investing in innovative, replicable projects that target a critical unmet need of disadvantaged and disenfranchised individuals.
