Donald Metcalf Grant (April 3, 1927-August 19, 2009) was an American publisher. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1927 and graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 1949. Grant's interest in fantasy and science fiction started when he began reading the stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs at age 10. He married in 1956 and has two children.

He also founded Grandon, Publishers in 1949 (this was after his split from Thomas Hadley; the name was that of a lead character in one of Otis Adelbert Kline's fantasy novels) and Donald M. Grant, Publisher, Inc. in 1964.
