WE ARE GROWING!
We are so excited to share that we will be expanding program partnerships in Atlanta and New York!
WHERE WE ARE:
In the U.S., Charleys Kids currently has program partnerships in Ohio (Columbus, Cleveland), Texas (Houston), Washington (Tacoma, Seattle, Olympia), California (Oakland, Los Angeles, Pomona), Arizona (Phoenix, Tohono O’odham Nation), DC, Illinois (Chicago).
Identify and understand needs of the region.
Identify established, trust-worthy, children-focused programs that address these needs in the region.
Invite programs to apply for a 1-year grant (there is an option to reapply each year and many of our partners have been with us for 2+ consecutive years).
Let's connect! We conduct initial interviews by phone to see whether we're a good fit. We partner together with the hopes of a sustainable, long-term relationship.
Site visit! Let's meet the kids (when time allows), see the program in action, and build a last relationship.
If accepted, our grant year will begin on Jan. 1 2019 and we give monthly support. We ask that our partners keep us in the loop with newsletters and required quarterly reports. We are committed to visiting each site in the U.S. at least once per year.
OPTION FOR CURRENT PARTNERS:
We are happy to help facilitate interactions between our Charley's stores in the region and our program partners.
1. When does your grant cycle open?
It is open! We will be accepting applications until early-December. Please email us directly to learn more.

We are always accepting applications, although your program will not be considered until the following year.
3. What do you look for in program partnerships?
Our program partners must be 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations that serve children in the capacity of education, mentorship, or food, have been active for at least 3 years and meet the needs of the community. Our partners must be financially transparent and organized. For programs that run throughout the school year, we prefer programs that are active at least 3+ per week.
