Dow Promise

Please note that the Dow Promise program is closed and will begin accepting applications again in August 2024.

Since its creation in 2000, Dow Promise has evolved from a promise into a lasting relationship that supports Dow’s commitments to the principles of sustainable development, and more importantly social responsibility.

The Dow Promise Program is an employee-led initiative to positively impact educational and economic challenges faced by youth and adults of African heritage in communities near Dow sites. A part of the Dow Promise program is an annual competitive grant program designed to support social, economic, or environmental projects that contribute to long-term success in the communities in which Dow operates and in which Dow employees reside.

Eligible locations include communities surrounding the following Dow locations:

Alabama: Mt. Meigs
Georgia: Marietta
Illinois: Buffalo Grove, Channahon, Elk Grove Village, Kanakee and Ringwood
Indiana: Kendallville
Kentucky: Carrollton, Elizabethtown, and Louisville
Louisiana: Louisiana Operations, Plaquemine, St. Charles Operations and Hahnville
Michigan: Great Lakes Bay Region
Pennsylvania: Bristol, Collegeville and Spring House
Tennessee: Knoxville
Texas: Deer Park, Freeport, Houston Dow Center, Sabine River Operations, Seadrift and Texas City

Applicants must be charitable or non-profit organizations (have a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax designation) or be municipal or government agencies. Faith-based organizations that have a 501(c) (3) can also apply, provided their projects benefit the community as a whole and not just their organization membership. A committee of Dow employees will select the projects.
