World War II - The Foundation responded to a variety of war relief organizations. The American Red Cross (ARC) was a principal beneficiary of war relief aid, continuing the Dodge family support that began during the Civil War. As WWII subsided, the Foundation’s attention turned to rebuilding efforts via various war restoration funds. Significant support was also appropriated for the Near East College Association, reinforcement of the strong legacy of Dodge family support.
