We appreciate the good work you do to make the world a better place and wish we could support all the amazing projects we hear about.

The Mission of the Ben & Jerry’s Foundation is to engage Ben & Jerry’s employees in philanthropy and social change work; to give back to our Vermont communities; and to support grassroots progressive social change organizations around the country.
Our interests are in furthering social justice, protecting the environment and supporting sustainable food systems.
We are committed to supporting non-violent, thoughtful and strategic approaches.
Our philanthropy is led by Ben & Jerry’s employees who serve on committees that review grants.
Giving back to our Vermont communities happens primarily through the small grants programs and the community service projects of the Community Action Teams at the company’s three Vermont sites.
