Jose “Pepe” Antonio Ortega Bonet, founder of Sazon Goya, was a firm believer in giving academically accomplished students access to quality education. He began The Ortega Foundation to provide scholarships to children of Sazón Goya and Goya Foods employees.

In 2014, the family established The Ortega Foundation Scholarship Program at The Miami Foundation to invest in Miami-Dade County’s high-achieving, college-bound seniors. During the program's first year, 17 deserving students were awarded $108,000 in scholarships. Jose Antonio's legacy of giving will continue to impact the lives of many students, and Miami, for years to come.
