SpartanNash Foundation


Our Impact

Throughout the year, the SpartanNash Foundation invites the communities we serve to join in supporting our national, regional and local 501(c)(3) no-profit partners. Guests of SpartanNash-owned stores or guests who shop online can donate at checkout.

Hunger, Heroes and Hope

Our charitable partners are carefully selected to ensure the dollars raised are effectively used in the local community. SpartanNash underwrites all operational expenses, ensuring that every dollar goes directly to the partner organization.

Our Customer’s Generosity

In 2021, the SpartanNash Foundation granted nearly $1.1 million through four campaigns, benefiting local Habitat for Humanity affiliates; Special Olympics; food pantry partners; and patriotic partners Honor and Remember, Team Red, White and Blue, and Operation Homefront.

Our Process

Throughout the year, we also invite nonprofit organizations that align with the Foundation’s mission to submit a grant application. The grants are reviewed quarterly by our SpartanNash Foundation Board of Trustees. Our grantmaking focuses on developing impactful partnerships in the communities we serve.

Our legacy

Since its creation in 2015, the SpartanNash Foundation has joined with community partners that align with our focus areas of Hunger, Heroes and Hope – though our giving initiatives go back much further than that. With a combined total legacy of more than 100 years, the SpartanNash Foundation represents the best of its predecessors, the NFC Foundation and the Spartan Stores Foundation.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees, comprised of our Associates and representing the company’s business units. It is funded primarily by donations from SpartanNash and store guests.
