The American Beverage Foundation for a Healthy America (Foundation) is dedicated to strengthening communities from coast to coast to create positive change for our nation. As a unified industry, and in partnership with key stakeholders, including elected officials and local community organizations, we know we can make a real difference. Since the Foundation’s inception, we’ve provided millions of dollars in grants directly to organizations and cities that are making a real impact in the lives of real people.


About the Foundation

The Foundation seeks to make a significant contribution to the health of local communities by providing grants to support organizations that work to advance both the physical health of their citizens and the environmental health of their communities.
