The Jack in the Box Foundation announced it has donated a total of $310,000 to two non-profit organizations: No Kid Hungry and Every Monday Matters. Each received $155,000, which was raised during the 28th annual Jack in the Box Charity Golf Tournament held April 18-19 in Palm Desert, California.
“Over the course of 28 years, this event has raised several million dollars to help our community partners provide critical assistance to lots of deserving people,” says Brian Luscomb, president of The Jack in the Box Foundation. “This year, thanks to the generosity of our participants and sponsors, we were able to support two youth-focused organizations with completely different missions. We're especially grateful to the National Franchise Association for once again stepping up to join our foundation as the event’s co-presenting sponsor.”
The donations expand the financial support that Jack in the Box and its franchisees have provided to nonprofit organizations across its system. To date in fiscal year 2018, more than $1.4 million has been donated, with additional beneficiaries including Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys & Girls Club, March of Dimes, USS Midway Museum, Classroom of the Future Foundation, Mission Valley YMCA, Alliance for Children’s Rights, Pro Kids, Monarch School and Warrior Foundation.
