Honoring Those Who Serve

Newman's Own Foundation has always been a supporter of the military, donating over $11 million from 2010 to 2015. In 2013, the Foundation announced a commitment of $7 million in grants over three years to support United States military men, women, and families through its "Honoring Those Who Serve" program. Current support is helping organizations across the country that address veterans’ issues such as mental and physical health, housing, education, career development, entrepreneurship, family support, and female veterans. A full list of the organizations and programs funded in 2015 is available below.

Every Veteran Has a Story

Military nonprofits do great work, and the people who are served by these organizations are equally special. These individuals offer unique perspectives, interesting insights, and much gratitude serving as an inspiration to all.

Paul Newman, Navy Veteran

Paul Newman enlisted in the United States Navy after high school, serving in the Pacific during World War II. One particular experience provided the core of his belief about luck and humility. In Saipan, the pilot of his crew became sick, grounding their bomber. The rest of Paul’s squadron was ordered to deploy aboard the USS Bunker Hill and days later were killed by kamikaze aircraft. It was simply luck that Paul had not been aboard. He attributed much of his success in life to luck, and what followed was a commitment to give back to those who were perhaps not so lucky.
