Purpose

BJ’s Charitable Foundation awards grants to organizations that support basic needs programs in the following areas:

  • Hunger prevention: Supports programs that work to alleviate hunger through the purchase of food, supplies and additional resources necessary to feed those in need. Funding will be disbursed to agencies, including food banks, soup kitchens, and food pantries.
  • Self-sufficiency: Support will be given to nonprofits that work toward the self-sufficiency of their clients. Grants will fund enhancement of shelter programs, purchase of supplies and clothing for residents, as well as programming that offers family safety.
  • Healthcare: Support will be given to nonprofits that work on providing healthcare to those who would not normally have access. Funding will be disbursed to agencies providing supplies to free medical clinics, health prevention services, as well as supplies for vision, dental and hearing screenings.
  • Education: Support will be given to nonprofits that provide academic and vocational opportunities for the disadvantaged. These programs include the purchase of supplies for literacy skills, mentoring, tutoring and career development.
