Team Up For Kids

We have a passion for sports and we believe there is a champion in every child. It’s the core of our vision for community giving.

Team Up For Kids

THERE IS A CHAMPION IN EVERY CHILD. WE ARE COMMITTED TO HELPING BUILD COMMUNITIES WHERE ALL KIDS CAN THRIVE, COMPETE AND BELONG TO A TEAM.

We're teaming up with Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) to help kids play on sports teams. We're donating over $4 million to BGCA by 2016 through donations from sauce and seasoning bottle sales and fundraising events in our restaurants.

Playing sports is about igniting a passion, belonging to a team, sportsmanship, working together to accomplish a common goal and building self-esteem through a great play. We believe every child should have the opportunity to learn the life lessons that are experienced through participating in sports, and build the skills that will help them thrive and compete in life. That’s why we’re committed to helping all kids have the opportunity to play on a team.

Our commitment to helping make our communities a better place to live, work and grow is a part of who we are. Since our first restaurants opened in Ohio, we’ve supported local community and school sports teams. Over the years, Buffalo Wild Wings, our franchisees and our Guests have given millions of dollars to local teams, local community and school organizations and to supporting those in need.

Crave-Worthy Flavor, Give-Worthy Cause

To help kids play on sports teams, we’re donating 50¢ from every bottle we sell of our award-winning sauces and seasonings to Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). In 2013, we donated more than $1.5 million, which included proceeds from the sales of sauces and seasonings.

We’ve got 16 crave-worthy sauces and five savory seasonings that make our famous wings a fan favorite. But why stop at wings? Our sauces and seasonings make great additions to burgers, sandwiches, dips and more. Spice up your condiment collection, spruce up your spice drawer, or give someone the perfect gift – all while helping a good cause.

We can’t do it without your help. Order your sauce or seasoning today and help us build a better tomorrow.

boys & girls clubs of america

Buffalo Wild Wings is proud to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). Together, we can help fulfill our mission to bring team sports into the lives of kids who need it most.

In 2014, Buffalo Wild Wings will give more than 25,000 kids the opportunity to belong to a team through ALL STARS grants that add or improve team sports programs and help build strong character, fitness and life skills. We’ll give more than 72,000 kids the chance to be part of a team and we'll donate and raise more than $4 million for BGCA by 2016.

Our work supports BGCA’s commitment to Great Futures, a movement to serve youth during the out-of-school hours – after school and in the summer – when kids are at risk of going unguided. Great Futures empowers local Clubs to serve more members, more often, providing positive role models, next-generation curriculum and great sports programming like ALL STARS, all in a safe place after the school bell rings at 3 pm. BGCA is a positive influence on nearly four million Club members across the country, changing the course of their lives to build Great Futures!

Eat Wings, Raise Funds.

We recognize that needs can vary greatly from one community to another. That’s why we’ve created a program that allows each of our restaurants to help raise funds for organizations in their local community. With our Eat Wings, Raise Funds. program, when you dine, we donate. Since its inception, Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants have donated more than $1 million to local organizations that assist youth and families in need, military families and disaster relief efforts.

Home Team Advantage

Buffalo Wild Wings® believes that teamwork builds the foundation for a successful community and our goal is to help make your community the best place to live, work, play and dine. That’s why we’re introducing Home Team Advantage, a way for your team to earn funds to benefit your program, all season long! Let’s keep our community working and playing together.

Giving In Our Communities

We’re supporting Boys & Girls Clubs in communities across the country. On April 9th, we hosted Community Day at more than 600 restaurants and donated 10% of our total sales to local Boys & Girls Clubs. It was a great way for our Guests to join our efforts in making a positive impact in our communities, and we gave nearly $370,000 to Clubs across the country.

At the 2013 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in Tempe, AZ, we had the honor of bringing 500 kids and their families to the game. Our Tempe area restaurants joined our efforts with a donation of more than $8,000 to their local Boys & Girls Clubs. And, during the game, the lucky winner of the halftime competition, Ky Scheibler of Hays, Kansas, was rewarded with a $10,000 donation in his honor to his hometown Boys & Girls Clubs of Manhattan, Kansas.

National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation and PROSTART®

Helping feed dreams and build futures through our support of education and development.

Buffalo Wild Wings is dedicated to sharing our passion for developing
 people. This year we'll donate $90,000 to the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation for the PROSTART@ program, which provides scholarships and helps educate and develop high school students to be leaders in the hospitality industry. The ProStart program reaches more than 95,000 students in 1,700 high schools across 47 states, Guam, and U.S. military bases.

In addition, to help the dreams of Minnesota students come true, we provide two $2,500 Buffalo Wild Wings Founders' Scholarships to high school seniors who are pursuing careers in the culinary field.
