About this funder:



PGDF is a national grantmaking foundation that raises and distributes funds to advance the treatment of alcohol use disorder.

What do you support?

Our grant program is designed to support increased options, elevated awareness, and facilitated access to recovery from alcohol addiction. By distributing funds to exemplary non-profit organizations, we work to:

  • Develop and test new medications and behavioral interventions for alcohol use disorder (AUD)
  • Identify the causative roots of AUD
  • Promote a “yes-and,” toolbox approach to AUD recovery that includes multiple strategies and modalities
  • Raise public awareness about AUD signs, symptoms, treatment, and recovery
  • Encourage the growth of innovative and effective local and national programs that promote AUD recovery
  • Address local and systemic obstacles to AUD treatment access

PGDF’s annual grant portfolio typically consists of seven to twelve grants, ranging from $5,000 up to $225,000. Our most common award amount is $5,000 to $10,000. The number and amount of awards given each year is dependent upon successful fundraising initiatives and will vary from year to year.

  • PGDF’s grant program provides funds to non-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations within the United States only. 
    • Proof of tax-exempt status and follow-up reporting will be required.


  • Initiatives that focus on alcohol addiction tend to score better than those that address addiction broadly.
    • The committee in most cases tends not to favor applications for ongoing support of existing programs that serve a local community.
    • Although we recognize the need for such funding, our goal is to spark innovation within the field, driving change that will ultimately lead to transformation.


  • PGDF does not give grants to individuals or for-profit businesses or organizations.
