About the Golden Globe Foundation

The Golden Globe Foundation was formed in 2023 following the sale of the Golden Globes to Eldridge Globes, LLC. The proceeds of that sale and existing resources of the organization allow the Foundation to continue a long history of entertainment-related charitable giving. The Foundation and its predecessor, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, have long supported a diverse range of nonprofit organizations assisting underserved communities, universities, and colleges, film restoration projects in the United States and overseas, and programs providing aid and assistance to journalists across the globe. Over the last three decades, the licensing fees from the Golden Globe Awards have enabled these organizations to make donations of more than $55 million to these charities.
