Our mission


The Katherine W. & Ezekiel R. Dumke Jr. Foundation is a multi-generational family foundation with diverse interest in our community, including the arts and culture, health and well-being, gardens and open spaces. The Foundation considers projects that present a compelling case for funding, with an emphasis on education and underserved populations. 

We accomplish this objective by providing funds for capital improvement, education, equipment, research and programs affecting targeted populations, which include aging populations, children, the community at large, homeless individuals, immigrants, minorities, people with different abilities, people with cognitive disabilities, refugees, students, veterans and animals.  

We are currently focusing on projects or programs that impact the Intermountain region, specifically Utah, Idaho and Montana.
