“There is no greater sacrifice than serving and defending our country,” said Robert Forrester, Newman’s Own Foundation President and CEO. “More service men and women are surviving injuries and coming home with serious wounds and conditions, so we are making a significant grant commitment to help meet the increased needs. We are pleased to award a grant to Armed Services YMCA as they endeavor to make a difference in the lives of our veterans and their families.”
Overall, Newman’s Own Foundation is awarding $7 million in grants over three years, 2012-2014, to more than 50 organizations across the country that deal with veterans’ issues such as health, housing, education, career development, and family support.
Paul Newman, the actor and philanthropist who founded Newman’s Own, passed away on September 26, 2008. Now, five years later, his legacy continues as Newman’s Own continues to give away 100% of the profits and royalties from the sale of its food products to charity. Since the company’s founding in 1982, over $380 million has been donated to thousands of organizations, with $125 million having been donated in the past five years alone.
