Campbell Soup Foundation

The Campbell Soup Foundation is providing community support grants to local champions that inspire positive change in communities throughout the United States where Campbell Soup Company employees live and work. Two of the focus areas for the Foundation are education and community revitalization.

Geographic focus includes:
  1. Camden, New Jersey – The Foundation invests in Camden initiatives that not only bring positive change to the people they serve, but also improves the quality of life for the entire Camden, New Jersey, community.
  2. U.S. Plant Communities – The Foundation supports the communities where Campbell Soup Company has facilities by funding programs that provide tangible results for local residents.
There is no formal deadline for submitting grant proposals as they are accepted year-round and reviewed on a rolling basis. The Foundation limits grants to nonprofit organizations which are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

All submitted proposals are screened by the Foundation’s staff to determine whether the requests fall in the defined focus areas and meet the evaluation criteria. Proposals meeting the criteria are reviewed in detail. Qualifying proposals are then presented to the Board of Trustees for final determination.

The review process for restricted grants may take up to three months. If longer, the applicant will be notified.

BETF is willing to partner with eligible BDPA chapters or national BDPA business area that is a good match for this funding source. Are you interested?
