Supporting the Community Through The Franklin P. and  Arthur W. Perdue Foundation

Through financial support of The Franklin P. and  Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Perdue Farms, we were able to make 85 grants totaling more than $1 million in 2013. This included:
  • More than $50,000 to environmental organizations, including the Oyster Recovery Partnership, Project Clean Streams, reforestation efforts and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay. 
  • A grant of $150,000 (over five years) to support Wor-Wic Community College and its Workforce Development Center in Salisbury, Md.  
  • Matching grant programs—established to challenge the associates of Perdue Farms to become more involved in their own communities—generated 15 grants totaling $145,000 to the United Way organizations that serve the regions where large numbers of associates live and work. 
  • A $150,000 endowment to the Richard A. Henson Family YMCA in Salisbury, Md., to help fund renovation and a new state-of-the-art wellness area. 
  • Nearly $90,000 in grants to food banks, pantries and hunger relief agencies. 
  • A three-year, $125,000 endowment to establish the Arthur W. Perdue Graduate Fellowship Program in the University of Delaware’s Department of Animal and Food Sciences.
