Support us at Wendy’s
The next time you’re enjoying a meal at Wendy’s, ask about our special fundraisers. There are many ways to pitch in to our cause.
National canister program
The dimes you get as change. The pennies and quarters hiding under your couch cushions. The nickels rolling around in the bottom of your purse. It doesn’t seem like much money, but all those small coins can make a big difference.
In 2012, change donated by Wendy’s customers raised $2.8 million. The money goes toward Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, our signature program, to find forever homes for children waiting in foster care.
The next time you stop by your local Wendy’s, drop some coins into the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption canisters. It probably won’t feel like you’re doing a lot, but when each of us gives a little, it really adds up.
Father’s Day Frosty Weekend
When you buy a cold and delicious Frosty over Father’s Day weekend, Wendy’s donates 50 cents to DTFA. You can also donate by purchasing a Frosty pin-up for $1. Wendy’s donates an additional 25 cents to the Foundation for every Frosty Card sent. In 2012, the Father’s Day Frosty campaign raised more than $1.4 million.
Halloween Trick or Treat gift books
Every fall, buy Jr. Frosty Halloween coupon treat books for only $1. Wendy’s donates 90% of all treat book sales to the Foundation. And in Wendy’s Wonderful Kids markets, all of the proceeds are used specifically to fund grants to support Wendy’s Wonderful Kids adoption recruiters. Since the fundraiser began in 1992, it has generated millions of dollars for the Foundation, and all donations go to help out the communities in which the money was originally raised. Last year, the Halloween program raised $2.8 million.
Wendy’s Kids’ Meal
Wendy’s appreciates children and families. Every time a Kids’ Meal is purchased, three cents is given to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption to help its work in finding forever families for kids in foster care waiting to be adopted.
