The Kroger Co. Foundation

The Kroger Co. Foundation was established in 1987 to support charitable activities in the communities where Kroger customers and associates live and work.

In 2008, the Kroger Foundation awarded $6.5 million to nonprofit organizations. The Foundation serves all of the Company’s retail divisions, the Company’s manufacturing division and convenience stores.

Grants are made to feed the hungry, support breast cancer initiatives, provide disaster relief and assist local grassroots organizations. 

The Foundation relies on personnel in the Company’s retail operating units to recommend the most appropriate and effective use of Foundation resources in the community. Please click here for a list of our retail division offices.

Only proposals from 501(c)(3) organizations are considered. We do not use a specific grant application. The Foundation does not support national organizations or programs; endowment campaigns; conferences or conventions; other foundations; individuals; medical research organizations; golf tournaments and other sports events. Eligible organizations may submit proposals at any time through the community relations department of the local retail division office.
