The Focus | Program Areas | Additional Programs

While the prevention of childhood obesity is the main focus for the foreseeable future, the Foundation will continue to fund programming that supports community needs and issues as outlined below:

Health & Human Services
Our commitment to the overall health and well being of our communities is our primary focus. Health and Human service agencies provide support to both our associates and customers and we feel it is essential that we recognize their value. In some of the geographic areas where the Foundation focuses its efforts, there is only one hospital or afterschool provider. This reality underscores the vital importance of our commitment to health care and human service programs in these communities. Moreover, we support programs that assist individuals and families who would otherwise be unable to afford care.

Education & Athletics
The Foundation believes in promoting learning and physical fitness beyond the traditional classroom and gymnasium. We take an interest in academic and fitness programs that encourage learning, integrate curricula and recognize fitness as a fundamental link in a balanced, healthy lifestyle. We especially seek to support innovative programs that provide opportunities to children who most need it.

Arts & Culture
We at the New Balance Foundation believe in the lifetime benefits of balanced learning which challenges the mind as well as the body. Supporting cultural programs that reach out to under-served communities and blend fun with related educational programming, offers opportunity where it might otherwise be unavailable.

Environment
Programs that improve the overall quality of life and provide innovative and sustainable solutions to key community issues involving the environment are of interest to the New Balance Foundation. It is our hope that future generations will be better prepared to sustain the needs of the global community in which we all live. And breathe.
