About BJ’s Charitable Foundation®

Established with the goal of creating a positive, long-lasting impact on the communities BJ’s serves, the mission of BJ’s Charitable Foundation is to enhance and enrich community programs that primarily benefit children and families. Since its inception in 2005, BJ’s Charitable Foundation has given nearly $19 million to over 2,100 community organizations in the 15 states where BJ’s Clubs are located.

BJ’s Charitable Foundation has moved away from the traditional quarterly grant review process to more strategic giving with limited partners. While BJ’s Charitable Foundation will continue to work to educate and feed individuals in need throughout the footprint, we will be doing so through specific project grants that will ultimately allow us to have a stronger impact in these areas. This is in no way a reflection on how BJ’s Charitable Foundation feels about the dedication and incredible work of past grantees. Instead it is a strategic change, which will ultimately help us reach the common goal of providing the vital services of hunger prevention and education to people in need throughout the East Coast and Ohio.
