Since 2010, the Dwight Stuart Youth Fund has been a grantmaking arm of the San Francisco-based Stuart Foundation.
Originally established as an independent foundation in 2001, the Fund was endowed by Dwight L. Stuart, Sr.(1924-1998) to benefit and serve the needs of children and youth in the greater Los Angeles area.
Mr. Stuart was raised in the Pacific Northwest and lived for many years in Los Angeles. He was president of the Carnation Company from 1973-1983 and was the grandson of its founder, E.A. Stuart. A life-long supporter of youth mentoring and sports programs, he was also a board advisor of the Stuart Foundation, which focuses on youth development, foster care, and K-12 educational issues.
The Board of Advisors of the Dwight Stuart Youth Fund is composed of Mr. Stuart's four sons and his sister.
