Papa John's launches a foundation — see who's getting funds

Papa John's International Inc. has launched a foundation to support communities that work together for equality, fairness, respect and opportunity for all. The first grant from the Papa John's Foundation for Building Community is to Bennett College, in Greensboro, N.C. The private, historically black liberal arts college for women received a gift of $500,000 and advertising expenditures to support #StandwithBennett, a campaign to help the school retain its accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Other initial grantees are the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Lean Into Louisville and the Association of American Colleges & Universities, according to a news release.
