Our Impact

Since its founding in 1958, the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation has awarded more than $600 million in grants ranging from modest assistance of $1,000 or less to multi-million dollar investments in the arts, education, healthcare, social services agencies and more.

The Foundation addresses needs large and small alike — always seeking to make a personal difference in the daily lives of Utahns, and to ensure a strong economic base for their future.
