At Kellogg, we have a long history of investing in our communities. Our founder, W.K. Kellogg, was not just a great entrepreneur; he was also one of the great philanthropists of the 20th century, giving away virtually all of his wealth.
More than a century later, his legacy lives on. We concentrate our philanthropic efforts on the communities where our employees live and work, while simultaneously exploring ways to address broader societal challenges. In early 2013, we unveiled a more targeted social responsibility strategy focusing on hunger relief, particularly breakfast. The Hunger Relief section of this website spotlights our food contributions and breakfast programs. We also have been focused on community development as well as programs that support diversity.
Kellogg Company and Kellogg’s Corporate Citizenship Fund (KCCF) provide funding for charitable donations. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is a separate entity and makes its own social investments. Founded by Mr. Kellogg in 1930, the Kellogg Foundation is governed by its own independent Board of Trustees.
