PepsiCo Foundation

As PepsiCo's philanthropic anchor, PepsiCo Foundation is responsible for providing charitable contributions to eligible non-profit organizations. The Foundation is committed to developing sustainable partnerships and programs in under-served regions that provide opportunities for improved health, environment, and education.

All requests for funding must be submitted through PepsiCo Foundation's new “Letter of Interest” (LOI) process.

Requests are evaluated on a rolling basis. Consideration regularly takes several months during peak times. Once a decision has been made, applicant organizations will be contacted and may be invited to submit a proposal if their program is a fit.

Do not mail requests directly to PepsiCo Foundation. Only LOI requests submitted to the correct email will be eligible for consideration.

Only programs that meet specific guidelines and further strategic goals and objectives within The PepsiCo Foundation's focus areas will be considered for funding. Please be sure to read the Foundation's Focus Areas and Grant Guidelines to check your eligibility before submitting an application.

The Foundation's key focus areas and priorities include:
  1. Health: Food security; Improved and optimum nutrition; Energy balance
  2. Environment: Water security; Sustainable agriculture; and Adaptive approaches to our changing climate
  3. Education: Access to education and training for the underserved; Women's empowerment
In evaluating funding requests, the Foundation will consider only those proposals which meet the following criteria:
  1. The extent to which the request addresses specific goals, methodologies and approaches.
  2. The degree to which the request advances or fulfills The PepsiCo Foundation stated goals and priorities.
  3. Evidence of proven success in the field or scope of work specific to the request.
  4. A method by which to measure and track impact and progress.
If you are seeking a grant, you must first submit a brief letter of interest that answers the questions in the attached document. Please submit this letter via email only to

Requests should align with PepsiCo Foundation's focus areas and objectives. Please keep in mind their goal of reaching and providing support to underserved regions across the globe.

You will be contacted and invited to submit a proposal only if your program is a fit with The PepsiCo Foundation. If you are invited to submit a formal proposal, please understand that there is no guarantee that your request will be funded. Your proposal will be evaluated along with other invited proposals within the budget available.

BETF operates on a first-come, first-served basis. The first eligible BDPA chapter to express interest in approaching this funding source is who we will be worked.
