Kemps Giving Cow Foundation

The Kemps Giving Cow® Foundation was established in 2020 as a part of the Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) Cares Foundation.  The Foundation formalized Kemps giving and aligns with our company purpose, “To Nourish Families.”

3 Guiding Principles

The Kemps Giving Cow® Foundation is anchored on these 3 guiding principles for our community giving.

Grounded on Kemps' mission to Nourish Families
The Kemps Giving Cow® Foundation is a 501c3 organization.
1. Alleviating Hunger with Nourishing Products and Distribution Expertise

The Giving Cow® shelf-stable milk is distributed through backpack programs and local food shelves.  Since inception, Kemps has donated over 3 million units of milk!  Click here to learn more about The Giving Cow program.

2. Offering Hope in Local Communities

Kemps locations nominate non-profit organizations or causes offering hope to children in need in our local communities.  Kemps Foundation has given over $200,000 to these organizations.

Organizations supported to date:

  • Urban League Twin Cities in Minneapolis, MN supports their community to overcome impacts of poverty

  • The Ronald McDonald House is home away from home for many families when accessing medical care
3. Delivering on “Good Comes Around”

The Kemps Giving Cow® Foundation is also funded by the generosity of our employee contributions and Kemps Cares events.  Kemps is committed to distributing all employee contributions back to our family of employees in the “Good Comes Around” designated fund.
