Building Fund Donors

Posted on December 5, 2022

(as of June 30, 2022)

In 2017, the Foundation launched an ambitious, multi-year business plan to expand the reach of Wendy’s Wonderful Kids in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Since then, the Foundation’s staff more than doubled in size. We knew we needed a new building where we could continue to grow, allowing ample space to collaborate, connect and innovate to serve more children waiting in foster care who urgently need a permanent family right now.

With support from our generous donors, on June 23, 2022, the Foundation held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially celebrate our forever home, located at 4900 Tuttle Crossing Boulevard in Dublin, Ohio.

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is pleased to recognize our Building Fund Campaign donors who generously gave $10,000 or more to help with the build-out and ongoing management of our new forever home.
