Culver’s Restaurants in 17 states raised more than $210,000 for local charitable organizations during its national “Day of Giving” fundraising event on Tuesday, May 12, exceeding the national goal of $200,000 given to local organizations.

Nearly 400 Culver’s restaurants raised the funds through a 10 percent of sales donation along with canisters donations by generous guests. During the “Day of Giving,” each local charity has an opportunity to communicate its mission, raise funds, and promote volunteer support in-store at Culver’s restaurants.

Members of the local organizations were on hand to answer questions and discuss how guests’ contributions directly impact the local community. One hundred percent of the money raised at each locally owned and operated restaurant remains goes directly to the local charitable organization.

“It’s our pleasure to assist the local organizations in meeting the needs of its community members everyday especially during these tough economic times,” says Lea Culver, Culver’s co-founder.

“Through the kind generosity of our guests during the ‘Day of Giving,’ we hope that each organization can continue its community efforts. Thanks to our guests, team members, and community partners who make this day a success.”
