Campbell Soup Foundation
The Foundation provides support to local champions that inspire positive change in communities where Company employees live and work. Priority is given to nonprofits in Camden, NJ., the birthplace of the Companyís flagship soup business and home to its world headquarters. The Foundation donates approximately $1 million annually to a variety of organizations that focus on community wellbeing, youth empowerment, and economic sustainability programming. The Foundationís signature initiative, the Camden Summer Program, provides constructive activities for 10,000 Camden youth who might otherwise be idle during the summer.
