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.
