Child Well-being

The Child Well-being Program awards grants by directly inviting organizations to submit proposals that are then reviewed by Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) staff and/or the DDCF Board of Trustees. Although unsolicited proposals are not being considered at this time, inquiries about future support for projects that fall within the Child Well-being Program's grant-making strategies can be submitted through a letter of inquiry. Due to the volume of funding inquiries, the Child Well-being Program does not accept funding inquiries over the phone. For more information about our funding strategies, please visit the program’s Goals & Strategies section.
