Become a Corporate Partner

The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is proud to collaborate with a growing number of organizations that have named the Foundation as their charity of choice. These companies have established a multi-year commitment to raise awareness of our mission within their network and give generously, such as through a percentage or point of sale programs, to advance our work.

Our partners have helped the Foundation serve thousands of children lingering in foster care across the United States and Canada, like Isaiah, Merriah, Rhianna and Johnathan, who now have the best opportunity for a bright future with the support of a permanent family.

Roof Maxx

Roof Maxx
Partnership established 2024

Roof Maxx chose the Foundation as its select giving partner, generously pledging a portion of its annual gross proceeds to benefit the Foundation’s mission.

Inspired by a child who was without a permanent home, Roof Maxx owner, Mike Feazel, knew he wanted his organization to be part of helping find forever homes for children in foster care facing the same fate.

Today, Roof Maxx dealers across the United States are helping to raise funds and awareness about foster care adoption by educating their customers and inviting them to make a difference.
