Open Hearts Foundation

Co-Founded by Jane Seymour, the Open Hearts Foundation has been shoulder to shoulder with those experiencing adversity, providing many forms of support and inspiration. At the heart of the Foundation’s mission is the Open Hearts Philosophy that in times of great challenge, one must accept it and reach out to do what they can to help others. In doing this, they can find purpose and live with an open heart. The Foundation fulfills its mission and has a deep commitment to serve through its two programs: a grant making program and the Young Hearts Volunteerism program. These two programs directly align with the Open Hearts Philosophy because we can all do something to help. Whether big or small, a generous donation or volunteering a skill set or time, we all have a role to play in lifting others up, inspiring those around us, and doing what we can in the face of adversity. The Foundation has provided more than $1.4 million to emerging charities throughout the United States in its grantmaking history and has engaged thousands of volunteers across the globe to do what they can to help and find their unique purpose. The Foundation is a small, public, 501(c)(3) foundation with an enormous mission, supported by creative, like-minded people working together for the greater good. Everyone is invited to join the Open Hearts movement!
