Institutional and Private Foundations
Just as we collaborate with individuals and other faith-based groups, we also strive to partner with corporate and private foundations in order to better serve the poor. Your organization can support our work to help the poor through the provision of a foundation grant or other award.
Throughout the years, several private and corporate foundations have enabled Food For The Poor to administer relief and development programs, along with proactive initiatives that enhance lives and help break the cycle of poverty.
Food For The Poor initiatives include emergency relief assistance, housing, education, healthcare, medical resources, orphanage sponsorship, child welfare, and vocational training. We also support individual economic and community development programs that help reduce poverty.
Overcoming extreme poverty in the developing world can seem insurmountable. But together, we can dramatically change lives for those who struggle daily to survive.

The Miami Marlins were instrumental in the construction of Inspiration Village in Malfety, Haiti, which consists of 41 safe and secure homes, a community center, and a water purification system for the country’s destitute and displaced.
The Office Depot Foundation has donated thousands of sackpacks filled with essential school supplies to orphaned and abandoned children in Food For The Poor’s Angels Of Hope program.

A grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation is being used to build a village in Fond des Blancs, Haiti, a dry mountainous region where families typically live in dirt-floor houses with crumbling mud walls, no sanitation and rusted zinc roofs. The foundation and Food For The Poor have also collaborated on a water purification project, and completed two community development projects with permanent housing.
