New Balance Foundation
$100 Million Milestone

The establishment of New Balance Foundation by Jim and Anne Davis in 1981 demonstrated tremendous foresight as New Balance embraced Responsible Leadership and established philanthropic goals focused on supporting vibrant communities and promoting good health for all. The Foundation remains steadfast in its mission to drive positive change in our global communities with an enduring commitment to preventing childhood obesity and championing the future success of today’s youth. To that end, New Balance Foundation has donated more than $100 million dollars to non‑profit organizations.
