The Papa John’s Foundation for Building Community supports communities as they work together for equality, fairness, respect and opportunity for all. We believe empowered communities overcome divides through civility and unity. That’s why we support organizations that share our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and driving positive change in our communities.
Our philanthropic approach focuses on three areas that represent the purpose of our mission, and reflect Papa John’s values and expertise: Youth Leadership & Entrepreneurship, Food Security, and Food Waste Reduction.
Our Building Community Fund provides grants for Papa John’s corporate and franchise restaurants to award to organizations doing important work in their local communities.
The SCCPTA Food Pantry Mini-Grant is designed to assist a local unit to start or round out a food pantry and/or backpack program. A local unit may apply for the grant to help defray the expense of a tight budget.
