Since 1953, the Campbell Soup Foundation has supported our local communities through direct grants, employee matching gifts, and partnerships with local, regional, and national nonprofits that build healthy communities in our hometowns. We focus on increasing healthy food access, encouraging healthy living, and nurturing our neighborhoods.
We’re currently focused on 3 grant programs to meet the needs of our local communities.
Our Strategic Fund is an invitation-only grant program that supports regional and national programs to strengthen and empower healthy communities in our hometowns. Through the Strategic Fund, we support our signature Full Futures school nutrition program, large food access initiatives, and more.
This program expands the reach of our funding to all Campbell communities in North America and empowers our employees to help us find worthy nonprofits across our locations. Employee nomination teams recommend organizations in their communities whose work aligns with our mission to apply for grants.
We’re partnering with nonprofits to provide critical COVID-19 relief and recovery support. These grants can be used for food and other essential supplies, infrastructure, staffing support, and innovations that help nonprofits pivot and continue their work during this unprecedented time.
Applications for these grants are now closed, but the work is ongoing.
We work to build and support healthy, thriving communities by providing grants in our office and manufacturing locations throughout North America. In addition to our core locations, we also provide grants to organizations near our sales offices in Cincinnati, Ohio; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Bentonville, Arkansas, and near our Latin America office communities in Puerto Rico and Mexico City, Mexico.
In 2020, we gave $620,000 in Community Impact Grants to 35 organizations in 20 Campbell locations, including:
