THE SHOPKO FOUNDATION

FOUNDATION MISSION

The Shopko Foundation is proud of Shopko's roots as a retail health and optical care provider. To maximize its impact, the Foundation has a narrow focus on areas of giving that support the health of Shopko customers, teammates and communities. The Foundation also recognizes that education is fundamental to an individual's health and functionality in society.

To achieve its vision, the Shopko Foundation believes in supporting community projects that may be accessed by, and our contribution made well known to, customers and teammates of Shopko. Funds will support established non-profit organizations with a proven record of success in maintaining solid, critical programs or innovative new organizations and programs supported by established non-profits or successful leadership. Consideration will be given to grant proposals that:

  • help citizens of all ages maintain or improve their physical health; and,
  • help students succeed in school and become self-sufficient adults.

To that end, the Foundation supports the following programs:
