NEW YORK, NY — The Steve Fund has been awarded a $20,000 grant from Newman’s Own Foundation, the independent foundation created by the late actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman. The award to The Steve Fund was made by Newman’s Own Foundation as part of its commitment to the empowerment of individuals.

With minorities forming the majority of Americans by 2044 (and for children already by 2020), the future success of our nation will depend on the mental health and emotional well-being of all student populations, and on colleges and universities to provide support appropriately.

The Steve Fund partners with colleges, universities and nonprofits institutions on practical strategies led by multicultural mental health research and practice experts that promote mental health and emotional well-being, reduce stigma around mental illness, and increase access to programs and services for diverse students.

Newman’s Own Foundation uses all net profits and royalties from the sale of Newman’s Own food and beverage products for charitable purposes. Since 1982, Paul Newman and Newman’s Own Foundation have donated over $500 million to thousands of charities around the world.
