Your cause, your Foundation

The Scripps Howard Foundation is interested in the causes that interest Scripps employees. Through the Bob Scripps Community Fund of the Scripps Howard Foundation, we offer programs that support nonprofits where employees give their time and money.

Scripps employees can apply for up to $1,250 twice annually to support organizations where they give their time and money. You decide how to allocate your gifts – all to volunteer gifts, all to matching gifts, or a portion of your match to each.

Application deadlines are May 31 and Nov. 30 annually.

Whether they work in Baltimore, Tampa, Milwaukee, Bakersfield or any town in between, one common thread unites Scripps employees: they do well by doing good. This certainly holds true in their work life – and the work they do in communities.

The Scripps Howard Foundation is proud to showcase examples of how Scripps employees who give of their time and money to organizations they care about.

Special Olympics Wisconsin

“I'm writing to thank you and the Scripps Howard Foundation for awarding our grant request for help with our Regional Bowling Tournament. As I stated in the request, Special Olympics is increasingly focused on not only providing competition and sports training, but also helping our athletes become healthier.

“We do this at many of our events by providing health screening and information. The more events we have, and the more athletes we can bring in for each, the greater our opportunity to impact them in this way. This grant will help us do that.”
