Community Success

DowGives – Northeast

Dow’s commitment to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve both globally, as well as locally in the Northeast, is one that spans more than 100 years. In an effort to deepen and strengthen our relationships and impact, we are moving forward with a new set of grant guidelines.
