Paul Newman Foundation

Go to and get a $1.00 off coupon for Newman's Own Pizza. Check out the other items on the site while you are there. I did not know about the Paul Newman foundation prior to finding this site. The pizza is made with all natural toppings, real mozzarella and extra-crispy crust in just 10 minutes. With all profits going to charity it is a win win situation.
Paul Newman was committed to helping make the world a better place. To carry on his philanthropic legacy, Newman’s Own Foundation donates all net royalties and profits after taxes it receives from the sale of Newman’s Own products to charity. To date, Paul Newman and Newman’s Own Foundation have given over $300 million to thousands of charities around the world.

Vision: A world where need is viewed as an opportunity to make a difference.

Newman’s Own Foundation is committed to honoring the spirit, values and philosophy of our founder, Paul Newman. We incorporate his personal style and principles into the way we do our work.

Paul’s approach, our approach…
•“Let’s give it all away.”
Paul Newman believed in sharing his good fortune with those in need. He never accepted any personal compensation from Newman’s Own, and donated every penny he earned from the sale of Newman’s Own products to charity. Newman’s Own Foundation is honored to continue this generous tradition.

•“The need is great and so are the opportunities to make a difference.”
Paul sought to make a meaningful difference by recognizing and pursuing opportunities where others only saw problems. Newman’s Own Foundation upholds this philosophy by partnering with leaders of action in their pursuit of the Common Good.

•“From the very beginning, I bucked tradition. When the experts said that something was “always done” in a certain way, I’d do it my own way.”
Newman’s Own Foundation refuses to be constrained by orthodoxy and safe thinking. We seek to find solutions to problems, and are prepared to back a good idea or to respond quickly to an urgent need.

•“While my taste for salad dressing is discerning, I’m a great believer that good ideas can come from the most unusual places.”
Paul welcomed input from staff and friends, and always sought to unearth and unleash transformative ideas and fresh solutions. He listened and so we listen. He asked and so we ask. He challenged his own beliefs and so we challenge ours. He sought and so we seek.

  1. Paul Newman is such an inspiration. As my grandma would say, he was a class act. It's a shame more celebrities don't follow in his footsteps!
