VF Foundation gifts millions to various bodies
One of the grants will support the global fight against COVID-19.
VF Foundation – a private grant-making organisation funded by US-based apparel and footwear provider VF Corporation – recently donated $7.3 million (£5.5 million) to 80 different organisations. This total reportedly includes $5 million (£3.8 million) in grants to support environmental justice and protection, social and economic equity and community impact, as well as some $2 million (£1.5 million) for global COVID-19 support and disaster relief.
According to VF Foundation director Gloria Schoch, these donations represent the company’s core values, while also making a global impact in protecting outdoor spaces, promoting the value of trade work and contributing to a world that prioritises equity and belonging for all people.
“We believe these are vital issues where we can have significant positive impacts,” said Ms Schoch. “These grants will help our valued partners advance their efforts while also creating movements that drive meaningful change.”
