Giving Back

As part of its culture and heritage, Golden State Foods has demonstrated for decades the importance of contributing to others. Underscoring this ongoing effort, the GSF Foundation, established in 2002, is dedicated to improving the lives of children and families in need in communities where GSF associates live and work through personal involvement and contributions. The GSF Foundation is a natural extension of the company’s values-based business. Funded and run by GSF associate volunteers and supported by its business partners, community partners and customers, the GSF Foundation operates under the direction of an executive board, which includes national representation from local GSF volunteers. Because the GSF Foundation is volunteer-run, 100 percent of associates’ financial contributions go directly to help families in need. 80% of GSF associates participate in the GSF Foundation – one of the highest rates in corporate America! GSF associates are making an impact in 28 local chapters across the United States – uniting their hearts and hands for good. For more information you can access our GSF Foundation infographic here.

GSF Foundation

The GSF Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life of children and families in need in the areas where GSF associates live and work through personal involvement and contributions.

Who We Serve

The GSF Foundation supports more than 600 children’s charities and elementary schools across the U.S. to help those in need. Building upon the existing charitable involvement of its associates, the Foundation partners with numerous local charities nominated by GSF employees, benefiting a variety of worthy organizations, children and families throughout the country.

Grantmaking

Since its inception in 2002, the GSF Foundation has granted funds to over 600 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations across the nation that align with our mission of improving the lives of children and families in need in the places where GSF Associates live and work. As such, grant applications must include the signature of a current GSF Associate who has nominated an organization and its proposed project. Complete grant applications nominated by GSF Associates can be submitted for consideration at the local level and applications recommended by the local committees will be reviewed again at quarterly national Executive and Board meetings in Irvine, California.
