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 more kids play team sports. By 2016 we are donating more than $4 million to BGCA, including donations from sauce and seasoning bottle sales and fundraising events in our restaurants around the country.

Playing sports is about igniting a passion, belonging to a team, sportsmanship, teamwork and building self-esteem through a great play. We believe every child should have the chance to experience team sports and learn the life lessons and 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, Buffalo Wild Wings, our franchisees and our Guests have given millions of dollars to support local community and school organizations, teams, and those in need.

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 is helping more than 25,000 kids belong to a team through 285 ALL STARS grants that add or improve team sports programs at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. To see if your community received an ALL STARS grant this year, click here.

Together, by 2016, 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 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Our commitment supports BGCA’s work to build Great Futures for America’s kids. During out-of-school hours, Boys & Girls Clubs serve nearly four million youth, providing a safe and productive place to go in their communities. Nearly 4,100 Clubs around the country provide positive role models, next-generation curriculum, great sports programs like ALL STARS, and a safe place after the school bell rings and during the summer.

Give Great Futures This Holiday Season

Tis’ the season for wings and football, but also for giving and cheer. During the holidays, Boys & Girls Club members are demonstrating their commitment to service by giving back to their communities. You can join in the spirit of giving, too – by participating in Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s annual “Give the Gift of a Great Future” holiday campaign. Through December 31, every dollar donated to BGCA will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 Million! Visit GreatFutures.org to learn more and give now. 

Give in good taste

When you give our award-winning sauce and seasoning bottles as holiday gifts, you'll be giving more than the gift of good taste. To help kids play on sports teams, we’re donating 50¢ from every bottle we sell to Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Last year, you helped us donate over $1.5 million!

We’ve got 16 crave-worthy sauces and five savory seasonings that make our famous wings a fan favorite, and they 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.

Giving In Our Communities

We’re supporting Boys & Girls Clubs in communities across the country. This year, Buffalo Wild Wings is donating $225,000 in Team Up for Kids grants to help nine Clubs make significant improvements in their sports programs and facilities. These Clubs will be empowered to attract and serve even more members with fun and valuable sports experiences. Our valued partner, Sargento Foods Inc., is teaming up with us to provide an additional grant to a Club in their hometown community in Wisconsin. Together, we can all make a difference in the lives of kids! Check back for updates on these exciting projects.

In April, 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.

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.

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.
