Grants for Health & More
The Ralphs Fund is part of The Kroger Foundation, an independent 501(c) (3) charitable foundation. The Ralphs Fund gives grants to nonprofit programs that meet the following focus areas:
Hunger Relief: Grants support programs and organizations, such as food banks, pantries and Meals on Wheels, that strive to reduce hunger and improve nutritional services to all of the communities where Ralphs customers and team members live and work. We are also a key partner of Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization.
Women’s Health: Focuses on women’s health – especially breast cancer – because of its impact both on women, the primary shoppers in our stores, and their family members. Grants support local chapters of the American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer foundation. The Ralphs Fund also supports local chapters of the American Heart Association.
Children/K-12 Education: Primarily to K-12 programs – have provided books for libraries, funded technology centers in schools and supported science programs. They also assist local arts, music, sports and enrichment programs.
Diversity: Grants support organizations that advocate and support the advancement of women and people of color, including local chapters of the YMCA, NCCJ, Urban League and NAACP.
Environmental Sustainability: Grants are primarily focused on those areas, such as waste reduction, energy conservation and community clean-up projects, which are the biggest opportunities for us to make a difference. The Ralphs Fund provides grants to support tree-planting initiatives and park improvements projects.
Grassroots & Disaster Relief: Our commitment to being a Good Neighbor is the largest grant-making focus of the Ralphs Fund. These grants are recommended by our stores and address local needs. In times of emergency, the Ralphs Fund also provides grants to the American Red Cross, Salvation Army and other local disaster relief agencies. http://www.ralphs.com/myralphs/703/Pages/Ralphs_Fund.aspx
