We focus on the enhancement of youth leadership and education opportunities through organizations such as Enactus and support for students continuing their undergraduate education. Schwan's Corporate Giving Foundation supports scholarship opportunities for the children of Schwan's subsidiary employees with renewable (up to four years) scholarships worth $2,500 per year. In 2022, 14 students were awarded post-secondary scholarships. In addition, the Foundation supports the Schwan’s Academic Scholarship at Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, Minnesota.
