Mission

Dr. William Evans Dean III (Bill) attended the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Nevada. He served his country in Vietnam as part of the U.S. Air Force and later graduated with honors from dental school. In addition to all these accomplishments, he was a registered Texas longhorn rancher, recreational pilot and avid animal lover. His passion for helping others continues in perpetuity through the establishment of the William E. Dean III Charitable Foundation, which he created in 2009.

Guidelines

The Dean III Foundation was created exclusively for charitable, religious, scientific, literary and educational purposes. Charitable grants are awarded to 501(c)(3) organizations within the United States and the District of Columbia.

In his lifetime, Dr. William Evans Dean favorably considered applications in support of helping canines and soldiers with the transition back into civilian life, or for the prevention of cruelty to animals.

The application deadline for the William E. Dean III Charitable Foundation is July 1.

Eligibility to re-apply for a grant award from the William E. Dean III Charitable Foundation requires the organization to skip 1 grant cycle (1 year) before submitting a subsequent application. For example, if your organization submitted a grant application for the July 2017 deadline and was awarded a grant in October 2017, your organization is not eligible to apply again until July 2019.

William E. Dean III Charitable Foundation grants typically range between $5,000 and $10,000.
