For forty years,
the Philip Morris family of companies has been a pioneer in supporting the arts. Its first
grant, made by Philip Morris Incorporated, was in 1958 for an outdoor concert in its
hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, and the companies have since developed the leading
corporate arts support program in the world.
Through the arts, Philip Morris celebrates and embraces the diversity of its heritage and
fosters values important to its communities around the world. Recent sponsorships focusing
on international and cultural exchange range from support for the U.S. tour of China's
first modern dance company, to performances by Alvin Ailey in Prague, to an exhibition of
emerging Mexican artists in Puerto Rico.
Philip Morris Companies Inc. has five principal operating companies: Kraft Foods, Inc.
(comprising Kraft Foods North America and Kraft Foods International); Miller Brewing
Company; Philip Morris International Inc.; Philip Morris Incorporated (PM USA); and Philip
Morris Capital Corp.
