The Safeway Foundation
Grants in Four Priority Areas (Posted 9/19)

The Safeway Foundation supports nonprofit organizations whose mission is aligned with these four priority areas:

  •     Hunger Relief
  •     Education
  •     Health and Human Services
  •     Assisting People with Disabilities

Funding is available for projects that have a positive impact in communities where Safeway operates, and fulfill one or more of their funding priorities. Requests to support events and requests for food donations are also considered in this subset.

Requests are reviewed by the local Public Affairs Director.
Grant request amounts vary, but are typically between $2,500 and $10,000.

Local grants are reviewed biannually. After the close of each application process, it typically takes about 8 weeks to respond.

Please note:  In Northern California, it is strongly recommended that you secure an employee sponsor prior to submitting an application.
