Paul Newman with campers from SeriousFun Children's Network
The idea was in Paul Newman's heart, and today, Newman's Own, Inc. continues his commitment to pay 100% of net profits and royalties from the sale of our food and beverage products to Newman's Own Foundation, a charitable organization supporting non-profits around the world.
In 1982, Paul Newman created Newman's Own, a premium quality food and beverage company, based on 2 principles: "Quality will always trump the bottom line" and "100% of the profits will go to charity." Paul felt he had been lucky in life and sharing one's good fortune with others was "just the right thing to do."
As the sole owner of Newman's Own, Paul donated over $245 million of the net profits and royalties he received to thousands of charities. Today, the "100% of profits to charity" commitment is continued by Newman's Own Foundation, which succeeded Paul as sole owner.
