W.K. Kellogg Foundation

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF), established in 1930, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support for children, families, and communities in achieving better health, education, and economic well-being. The foundation focuses on addressing systemic inequalities and injustices through its grant making activities, aiming to create conditions for equitable access to opportunities and resources. The foundation maintains the three central and interconnected priorities of thriving children, working families, and equitable communities.

One area of focus for the WKKF is early childhood development. Recognizing the crucial role that early experiences play in shaping lifelong outcomes, the foundation invests in programs and initiatives aimed at improving access to quality early childhood education, healthcare, and family support services. The foundation also engages in partnerships and public policy efforts to promote systemic changes and encourage healthy and equitable access to resources, healthcare, and opportunities for children and families in underserved communities.

The WKKF provides grants to assist communities and small businesses develop equitable employment pathways for job seekers. The foundation also prioritizes food security and sustainable agriculture as part of its efforts to improve community well-being. It supports programs and initiatives that increase access to healthy and nutritious food, particularly in underserved communities.

In addition, the WKKF is focused on advancing racial equity. The foundation recognizes the enduring impact of historical and systemic racism on communities of color and works to dismantle barriers to opportunity and justice. Through its grant making efforts, the foundation supports organizations and initiatives that promote equity-centered leadership programs and community-driven solutions to systemic racism and injustice.
