KIND People This program will celebrate people who have gone out of their way to help others in need. A KIND Person is someone who has performed an extraordinary act of kindness or demonstrated a selfless commitment to others. We’re looking for individuals who have acted with humanity to impact another person’s life or an entire community – making our world a better place. To hear what this program means to Daniel Lubetzky, Founder of KIND & President of The KIND Foundation, check out the video below. To celebrate the most exemplary nominees and help them on their journey to do more good, we will be awarding a total of $1 million – 5 awards of $100,000 each, and one award of one half a million dollars.

The KIND Foundation In 2004, KIND was founded with the following mission: do the KIND thing for your body, your taste buds and your worldTM. To deepen this mission, we’ve created The KIND Foundation to foster communities that are healthier, more empathetic and embrace our shared humanity. Through the Foundation, we will strive to improve the way we live, eat and relate to one another. We will continue to place a particular emphasis on celebrating and inspiring kindness. We’re just getting started. Stay tuned for programming updates and additional grant opportunities. Please note at this time we are not accepting unsolicited grant proposals. The KIND Foundation is a Delaware non-profit corporation. The KIND Foundation will seek status as a 501(c)(3) organization this year.
