The SpartanNash Foundation was formed in 2015 and is focused on providing grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit partners in the communities we serve. As the charitable giving arm of our company, the SpartanNash Foundation represents the best of its predecessors, the NFC Foundation and the Spartan Stores Foundation.

The SpartanNash Foundation aligns with its community partners to provide hunger relief, secure shelter and support our military heroes. We also are deeply committed to continuing our 33-year partnership with Special Olympics. To date, we have donated more than $8.6 million and thousands of volunteer hours to Special Olympics in addition to providing meals for Summer Games volunteers.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees, comprised of our associates and representing all business segments of the company. It is funded primarily by donations from SpartanNash Company and in part by our associates and store guests. 

At designated times throughout the year, the SpartanNash Foundation invites our store guests to donate to the nonprofit partners we support through a series of retail scan campaigns. One hundred percent of funds raised by the Foundation during these initiatives go directly to the causes we support, as our company underwrites the cost of all fundraising campaigns.
