New Balance Foundation fosters bold partnerships that strengthen the communities where we live and work.
We invest in research-driven strategies and contribute guidance and connections to our community partners to build capacity and seed innovation.
Central to our work is our commitment to address childhood obesity. Our investments support programs that focus on leading with research, sustaining our youth and supporting community needs. Our strategy recognizes that today’s urgent problems require that all actors – institutions, businesses, nonprofits and citizens worldwide – work together in a structured way and with a common agenda to realize lasting social change.
LEADING WITH RESEARCH
We believe that research will unlock solutions to building a healthier future.
SUSTAINING OUR YOUTH
We believe that children need to move, that fueling the body with real food gives them the energy to do anything they want and that education opens the world to them.
SUPPORTING COMMUNITY NEEDS
We believe that removing barriers to health, addressing basic needs and supporting vibrant community organizations lifts all boats.
