About The Lund Foundation
The Lund Foundation seeks to invest in organizations and projects that will deliver the most impact on the future of the State of Utah for our grant dollars. We prioritize organizations who partner closely with others to maximize their benefit to society. We support human capital in social enterprises through program-related investments and general operating grants to carry out your operations. We also seek to provide help for organizations and projects that may not fit with our funding priorities by providing introductions to other organizations that may be able to help. The Lund Foundation was created in 1998 from the sale of American Stores Company to Albertsons Grocery Stores. Victor L. Lund was the CEO and Chairman of ASC. He and his wife Linda endowed a foundation in order to instill in their children a desire to give back. Born in Bountiful in a family floral business and two-income household, they had times where it was tough to get by when they were younger. So as things got progressively easier for them, they always knew they were lucky to be where they were and never thought that life would always be this way for them. Under the guidance of their son, Jeramy, and daughter, Chandler, the foundation began with a mission to aide underserved women and children and the environment. In that capacity, it has served a number of non-profits in the local community (and other communities where the Lunds have lived). However, over time, it has also become a founding funder of several catalytic organizations that benefit multiple constituencies and groups. The Lund Foundation has helped found the Community Foundation of Utah, Envision Utah and PandoLabs as well as many collaborative funding groups across the Intermountain West.
