CAMPBELL SOUP FOUNDATION
Since 1953, the Campbell Soup Foundation has provided financial support to local champions that inspire positive change in communities throughout the United States where Campbell Soup Company employees live and work.
The Foundation places particular emphasis on Camden, N.J., birthplace of Campbell’s flagship soup business and home of our world headquarters. Each year, the Foundation donates approximately $1 million to a variety of organizations that focus on community wellbeing, youth empowerment and economic sustainability programming which support the development of a healthy community. Nourishing the lives of the people of Camden is among our top priorities.
The Foundation’s signature initiative, the Camden Summer Program, provides constructive activities for 10,000 Camden youth who might otherwise be idle during the summer months. The program, now in its 39th year, is focused on building a healthy Camden community.
The Campbell Soup Foundation also supports 15 separate United Way campaigns hosted at Campbell and Pepperidge Farm operating facilities throughout the United States. Employee donations coupled with a match from the Campbell Soup Foundation generated more than $1.7 million for the United Way last year.
Outside of Camden, the Foundation also supports charitable efforts in more than 20 communities where Campbell has operations.
