The UFCW CHARITY FOUNDATION’S mission is to provide support for charitable endeavors, such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Faces of our Children; and to provide educational scholarships for UFCW members and their children. Thanks to the generosity of UFCW local unions across the US and Canada and the philanthropy of UFCW vendors, service providers, and corporate partners, the UFCW Charity Foundation is able to have a meaningful impact. The UFCW donates staff time dedicated to UFCW Charity Foundation work. This donated time and low overhead means that nearly 100% of funds go directly to our charities. Founded in 1996, the UFCW Charity Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
