In 1966 Publix Super Markets founder George W. Jenkins, affectionately known as Mr. George, established a charitable foundation with the intention of caring for his community—and with a vision that the giving would continue long after he was gone. Today, under the leadership of Mr. George’s daughter, Carol Jenkins Barnett, Publix Super Markets Charities remains committed to serving the communities in which Publix operates. And the legacy of giving continues.
By supporting a variety of nonprofit organizations engaged in life-changing work, Publix Charities makes a far-reaching impact throughout the Southeast. The result is stronger communities infused with hope and prepared for a brighter future. If you represent a nonprofit organization that is doing great things for your community in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, or Virginia, you can begin the process of requesting support here. Our areas of focus are youth, education, reducing hunger, and alleviating homelessness.

It’s also in the hearts of the thousands of Publix associates who consistently donate their time, talents, and treasures to improve the lives of others. Publix Charities helps people and nonprofit organizations build healthier communities for years to come.
