Dorothea Haus Ross Helps Vulnerable Children

The Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation offers grants that fund programs for kids up to the age of 18. This program is  mostly concerned with any child who is vulnerable through no fault of his or her own. The Foundation also makes matching grants. Decisions are made within three months of a proposal’s receipt. Proposals are considered on a regular basis, but a proposal should be made a month prior to their meeting date.
