Hearst Foundations Surpass $1.5 Billion in Grantmaking to Nonprofit Organizations in the United States

The Hearst Foundations announced that they have surpassed $1.5 billion in grants to over 6,400 organizations since their founding in 1946 by William Randolph Hearst. The announcement was made by Presidents of the Hearst Foundations, William R. Hearst III and Virginia Randt.

Operating independently from Hearst, the Foundations are national philanthropic resources for organizations working in the fields of culture, education, health and social service. Grantmaking also includes administering two unique annual programs: the United States Senate Youth Program for high school juniors and seniors as a public service immersion in Washington D.C. and the Journalism Awards Program for undergraduates studying journalism at accredited schools of journalism.

“The Hearst Foundations have awarded $1.5 billion across 22,700 grants. These numbers represent opportunities for people all over the country,” said Virginia Randt, president of The Hearst Foundation. “The Hearst Foundations’ grants help provide access to high-quality educational, cultural and social service programs and improve health care for people of all ages. Through these efforts, we seek to help those in need build healthy, productive and satisfying lives.”
