Thank you for your interest in the
 J. R. Albert Foundation.

 At this time, we are not accepting unsolicited grant applications.

 Who We Are
 

 J. R. Albert was interested in promoting healthy living and wellness, and hoped that the growing prevalence of obesity-related diseases and their effects on quality of life could be prevented whenever possible.

 Founded in Nov. 2007, the J. R. Albert Foundation provides support to nonprofit organizations  in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri and Kansas whose purpose is:

To increase access to healthy foods by developing local food delivery systems, increasing distribution of fresh foods,  and work in sustainable agriculture, urban farms, and community gardens.

To  provide food to those who are in need, by supporting large regional food banks.

To provide nutrition and wellness education and opportunities, particularly in economically disadvantaged populations. We are especially interested in collaborative efforts towards community change.
