Home | Our Responsibility | Grant Program

Through our corporate giving program, Just Born makes monetary donations to charitable, educational, and arts organizations.  We welcome grant requests from non-profit organizations operating in the following geographical areas: Lehigh and Northampton Counties in Pennsylvania, the community surrounding our GOLDENBERG’S PEANUT CHEWS® factory in Northeast Philadelphia, and within a 10-mile radius of our PEEPS & Company® retail store.

The health and well-being of children and their families is the primary focus of Just Born’s corporate giving program.  We make grants in these areas:

Corporate Giving, Grant Program from Just Born Candy

  • Arts and Cultural Events – programs designed to make the arts more accessible to a wider audience and those specifically targeted to educating underserved youth in the community.
  • Education – programs that enhance the curriculum of the local school system, with particular interest in programs that help underprivileged and underserved children.
  • Health and Human Services – we support the United Way; social service programs that serve the basic needs of low-income people, senior citizens and the differently abled; social welfare programs that promote character building and healthy choices among our youth; programs that encourage safe and healthy neighborhoods and programs that promote equal opportunity for socially and economically disadvantaged children and families.
  • Community Development – programs and organizations which foster job creation, community development and housing
  • Environmental Education – programs available to school children and the community at large.
  • COVID 19 – Just Born Quality Confections is investing $50,000 in our COVID-19 Response Fund. This fund will award one-time grants on a rolling basis to non-profits who support organizations on the front lines aiming to strengthen safety-net services for community members who are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, with a focus on food and housing access.
    • These grants are flexible. Their intention is to bend with the needs of the organizations receiving them as other needs could swell and take on greater urgency. We ask that you please inform us prior to any changes in programming.
    • This commitment is a small way we can help our community heal as we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times.
    • Funding open until June 30th, 2021 or until funds are all dispersed
