Newman’s Own Foundation is a private, US-based independent foundation established in 2005 by the late actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman. The Foundation continues Paul’s commitment to making the world a better place by donating all profits and royalties earned from the sale of Paul Newman’s Own and Newman’s Own products to charity. To date over $540 million (USD) has been donated to thousands of charities around the world including $22 million (USD) to Australian and New Zealand charities.

2019 EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

Paul Newman believed that giving back is the greatest opportunity we have to make our world a better place. Newman’s Own Foundation supports organisations and programs that continue Paul’s legacy of giving and create opportunities for long-term impact.

In 2019 Newman’s Own Foundation is seeking grant applications from organisations providing support for youth in regional and rural areas disadvantaged by drought and/or other natural disasters. Due to the ongoing strain and pressure many communities are facing, these grants will support programs that improve the physical, social and mental wellbeing of young people and help them build resilience for the future.

Grants ranging between $30,000 to $75,000 (AUD).

The Foundation will address areas of disadvantage through grants that:

• Improve access to educational, arts and sports programs;

• Build capacity for mentoring and mental health counselling;

• Facilitate access to medical services and facilities;

• Address access to fresh food and nutrition;

•  Provide experiences outside the community via excursions and camps.

Applications close 4 March 2019.
