The Hearst Foundations have awarded 84 grants to support deserving organizations in the fields of culture, education, health and social services. Several times each year, the Hearst Foundations identify and fund outstanding nonprofits to ensure that, across the country, all people have the opportunity to build healthy, productive and inspiring lives.
This summer, the Foundations—which operate independently from Hearst—selected to award groups ranging from the Brooklyn Public Library to the Queen's Medical Center in Hawaii, including a grant for God's Love We Deliver, a New York City-based group providing healthy meals and nutrition literacy for those in the community impacted by serious illness.
William Randolph Hearst first established the Hearst Foundations in 1945. Since its inception, the Foundations have provided more than $1.1 billion in grants to more than 20,000 worthy organizations.
