Purpose and Activities

The Hearst Foundations are national philanthropic resources for organizations working in the fields of culture, education, health and social services. The Hearst Foundations identify and fund outstanding nonprofits to ensure that people of all backgrounds in the United States have the opportunity to build healthy, productive and inspiring lives.


Incorporated in 1945 in NY - Founded by the late William Randolph Hearst, who was a newspaper magnate and publisher whose chain of papers included the San Francisco Examiner and New York Journal. In addition, Hearst served in Congress as a United States Representative. With assets valued over $230 million, the Hearst Foundation, Inc., is the smaller of the two Hearst foundations. The other is the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, which is ranked among the nation's 100 largest foundations. Both Hearst foundations are strongly committed to education, health, social service, and culture. The same individuals serve on the boards of both foundations, which are administered through the New York headquarters and the San Francisco offices.
