H.j. Heinz Company Foundation
DescriptionEstablished in 1951 to make contributions to the public welfare, the Foundation is committed to promoting the health and nutritional needs of children and families. Priority is given to programs in communities where the Company operates with a special focus given to organizations in southwestern Pennsylvania. The Foundation also provides funding to international organizations. Grants are awarded in the following program areas: nutrition, youth and education, diversity, healthy children and families, and quality of life. Nutrition grants promote improvements in, and a better understanding of, good nutrition and contribute to the health and well being of people and communities. Youth and Education grants enhance the positive development of children and youth by supporting systems that affect learning. These grants also help sustain programs that supplement the formal education process. Diversity grants promote the advancement of minority populations and women with a focus on development opportunities for girls and minority youth. Healthy Children and Families grants improve the overall well-being of people by ensuring children and families have the resources and services necessary to help them live healthy and happy lives. Quality of life grants promote programs that support and add to the quality of life in Heinz communities. These grants can provide increased accessibility for the low-income and disadvantaged through art, cultural, educational, and outreach programs. Letters of inquiry are requested. Organizations must be able to demonstrate plans to continue the project after the grant funds end.
