Publix Super Markets Charities has been in existence since 1967, one year before Warner was founded. The foundation was established by George Jenkins, the founder of Publix, to support and improve life in the Publix communities. Publix Super Markets are highly visible in communities throughout Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.
Warner University has been the recipient of grant funds from Publix Super Markets Charities for more than 34 years. Their recent 2021 gift towards the Royal Fund for Excellence supporting student scholarships continues this tradition. A simple stroll across campus and walking through our buildings, will show you the evidence of Publix Super Markets Charities support for Warner University.
The Publix Super Markets Charities Classroom in the Pontious Learning Resource Center is the most visible and highly trafficked area on campus to see such support. Classes are held from early morning to well into the evening in this spacious classroom. Publix Super Markets Charities is also visible on donor plaques such as the ones in the Rigel Student Center and in the PLRC.
Their generous support aided the development of the Men’s and Women’s Soccer fields, but the greatest impact has been in the area of student scholarships. The Publix Super Markets Charities scholarship gifts have allowed Warner to give current students academic merit scholarships. Without the financial backing these scholarships offer, many of the students would not be able to attend Warner.
Warner University would like to recognize Publix Super Markets Charities for the significant support they have given to the university over the years. Our local Publix supermarket stores have also assisted Warner on many occasions by donating food items for various events.
Warner University is grateful for Publix Super Markets Charities and their philosophy of supporting many organizations in the community, and we are honored to be chosen as one of them.
