Our Mission

100% of profits to help kids

Fighting for kids since 1982
When Newman’s Own first began, Paul Newman declared that 100% of the profits would go to good causes.

The mission continues today through Newman’s Own Foundation. More than $600 million has been donated to good causes since 1982.

The Need

Childhood challenges

Newman’s Own nourishes and transforms the lives of children who face adversity.

In service of its mission, Newman’s Own Foundation helps to provide joyful experiences for children living with serious illnesses.

  • Every year, 1800 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer*.
  • 1 in 10 children** are missing out on their childhood due to a serious illness or disability.
  • SeriousFun Children’s Network has delivered more than 1,720,000 life-changing camp and recreational experiences, totally free of charge, since Paul Newman opened the first camp in 1988.

Our Commitment

Continuing Paul’s commitment to “Give It All Away”

Paul Newman was passionate about bringing joy to children. The work of Newman’s Own Foundation honours his commitment to improving children’s lives.

SeriousFun Children’s Network
SeriousFun Children’s Network, founded by Paul Newman, is a global community of 30 camps and programs serving children with serious illnesses and their families, always free of charge.

Following the founding of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp – (USA) in 1988, Paul and other like-hearted individuals opened similar camps around the world, ultimately joining together to form SeriousFun Children’s Network. Over the Wall, the SeriousFun camp in the UK, opened in 1999 and, since then, has provided camp experiences for more than 8,000 children and their families, serving the needs of children living with more than 130 different medical conditions.
