From The Wall Street Journal:
To celebrate 30 years of Newman's Own,
the Newman's Own Foundation...(announced) a commitment to
give away at least $30 million to various charities this year. The
foundation, which is based in Westport, Conn., and owns the famous food
company, has awarded $350 million in grants during its existence and
2012 will be its largest funding year ever.
The funds will go to nonprofits that
work in the areas of nutrition, children with severe medical conditions
or who have had a disrupted childhood, empowerment of people and
promoting philanthropy. That includes everything from supporting wounded
veterans to encouraging play for children to initiatives that cultivate
corporate philanthropy and boost the efforts of young people working
for social change."
