2020 Year in Review

The Dyson Foundation is pleased to present our 2020 Year in Review. In 2020, the Foundation awarded a total of $9.3 million in grants. In light of the global pandemic, which severely challenged the nonprofit sector and the communities they serve, $1.2 million of that funding was in the form of COVID-19 community response grants to support safety net and related human services.
