Our Supporters

Without the support of our dedicated franchisee partners, system vendors, employees, sponsors and restaurant guests, the Foundation would not be able to do the work that we do. In 2023, over $8.2 million was raised to support scholarships for high school students and employees throughout North America, literacy and education projects globally, and the BK Emergency Fund. With their help, we continue building opportunities for a better tomorrow for our communities.

In-Restaurant Fundraising

Each year, the Foundation holds signature in-restaurant fundraising campaigns to continue supporting our programs. Thanks to the generosity of our customers and the efforts of franchisee owners who motivate their employees, over $4.9 million was raised in 2023 through round-up, donation boxes and a coupon campaign across the U.S and Canada.
