Our Programs

General Assistance

The Dot Foundation General Assistance Program is designed to help needy families pay for essential needs while working to achieve self-sufficiency. General assistance is provided for a specific need (groceries, utility payments, clothing, child care, etc.). Payments will only be made to a business or organization that provides a specified good or service. 

General Assistance Application Guidelines:

  • A separate application should be filled out for each individual fund request.
  • Applications will be reviewed and accepted once per month.
  • Application acceptance is dependent on need and accessible funding.
  • An email or phone number is required for the application to be approved.
  • As per The Dot Foundation policy no cash or gift cards can be given to individuals. Applications requesting funding be distributed to an individual will be declined. 

Sponsorship Program

The Dot Foundation Sponsorship Program is designed to give Iron County residents a place to nominate a friend for financial assistance. Often times, those most in need of help are the least comfortable asking. If you know of a family or individual from Iron County who is struggling to make ends meet and would truly benefit from some financial support, please fill out an application for them.

  • Sponsors (the individual filling out the application) may make a direct financial contribution to the nominee if they choose.
