UFCW 951 Foundation
The UFCW 951 Foundation, established in 1996, is a member-driven program that provides assistance to members facing difficult times, along with annual scholarship programs that help with child care, college, children’s extracurricular and community involvement, and utility bills.
For over a decade, the UFCW Local 951 Foundation has been helping working families and building stronger communities in a variety of ways. Through the financial assistance it provides, the Foundation makes an important difference in members’ lives and the communities where they live and work. Thanks to the Foundation, some members have been able to go to college, and provide child care and extracurricular activities for their families. It has enabled others to put food on the table and keep the lights turned on, and helped others rebuild their lives after a tragedy.
Funded primarily through voluntary paycheck deductions by the UFCW 951 membership, the foundation is an integral part of the 951 community.
The Foundation is on track to give back over $100,000 to members in 2016, through $59,000 in annual scholarship programs and through sponsoring unit-level fundraisers, which have consistently donated over $40,000 for the past three years. The Foundation matches 25% of the
amount donated by members during fundraisers. The combined total is given to the member in need. Click here
