The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is eternally grateful to our many donors and partners whose continued generosity helps us to dramatically increase the number of adoptions from foster care. This month, we feature Crane Group.

We are motivated by a tradition to do good for the community that has been so good to us. Just as Crane Group takes a long-term approach in our business investments, our commitment to support nonprofits that benefit our community is likewise also long-term. We actively seek out nonprofits with great leadership and programs and do so because “acting as stewards and leaders in our community” is both an expressed family and company value. Our actions simply underscore a perspective that our community is rich in talent and potential. We continue to find great satisfaction when our neighbors thrive because of our nonprofit partnerships.

Tell us why Crane Group is passionate about supporting The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption’s vision that every child will have a permanent home and loving family.
Like in business, we value an entrepreneurial and collaborative spirit in nonprofits. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has steadily refined its processes to connect children with their forever families, which has resulted in an impressive record of success. When we received news of the effort to scale your programming nationwide, we were pleased to offer support by funding critical capacity building needs. We proudly support the vision of the Foundation and your display of leadership for this worthwhile cause, because we eagerly anticipate a future in which the children served through Wendy’s Wonderful Kids will one day too be the stewards and leaders of our community.
