Grant Funding Guidelines for National

Albertsons Companies Foundation funds organizations that strengthen the neighborhoods we serve.  Please see below for our guidelines and other important information on our grants process.

On a National level, our priority is eradicating Hunger in our neighborhoods.  Specifically, we actively seek out organizations that feed our neighbors.  If your organization is working in this space, we request that you fill out an application. Upon review of your application, we may invite you to participate in our annual RFP in the fall.

Each of our regions also have other priorities.  To learn about priorities in your area choose your neighborhood.

Organizations we fund must serve the community where we operate.  To learn more about our operating area, please either select your store by clicking ‘Change’ at the top of this website or view our online map at

Although we would love to help everyone, the Foundation generally does not fund:

  • Individuals or for-profit organizations
  • Political organizations or activities
  • Religious organizations for religious purposes
  • Capital or building campaigns
  • Advocacy programs
  • Meetings, conferences or workshops
  • Sports teams or athletic competitions
  • Other foundations or granting organizations
  • Fundraising dinners, galas, and events. We generally do not sponsor these events because the sponsorship is not fully deductible and because we prefer that our funds go directly to program services rather than offsetting event expenses.

Our Foundation does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.  A nondiscrimination policy will be requested of all applicants.
