General Mills Foundation

Since its inception in 1954, the General Mills Foundation has contributed more than $1 billion toward causes tied to education, the arts, hunger and nutrition wellness, and natural disasters. It reached a milestone in fiscal 2013, donating more than $153 million, or nearly $3 million a week. Brand philanthropy and corporate contributions represents the largest share of its giving. This slice includes the company’s popular and well-known cause-marketing programs such as Box Tops for Education (which supports K-8 schools in the U.S.), Yoplait Save Lids to Save Lives (which supports breast cancer research and education), Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories (which supports literacy programs), and many others. Norwich is pleased to offer employees of the General Mills Foundation and their families a 10% tuition discount and waived application fee for our master's degree programs.
