Making an educational difference in the lives of under resourced children

We aim to strengthen communities worldwide by partnering with local programs that provide children with the critical resources to succeed through a trifold focus on education, mentorship, and healthy food.

Columbus Tutoring Initiative

The Children's Tutoring Initiative is a program designed to provide tutoring services to students across multiple schools, with a focus on enhancing their reading abilities.

Our Program Partners

These programs are more than just connections and friendships; they are family working together with us to strengthen our communities.


College Bound

Our Supporters

10¢ are donated to Charleys Kids for every combo meal purchased at participating Charleys restaurants and for every drink purchased at all Bibibop locations. These funds are then distributed to our various partners across the country.

Letter from Charley

The Charleys Kids Foundation believes every child, regardless of their situation, deserves the opportunity to attain their dreams through access to a quality education.

Quality education gives free rein to the untapped potential of children from all walks of life. Children learn that their circumstances do not define them. From the harsh neighborhoods of Columbus, OH, and throughout the US, to the emerging nations overseas, education opens doors for students to rise above their circumstances. With your support, we can ensure they have the opportunity they deserve.

Your participation, commitment, and contributions are essential. By working together, we can ignite their dreams, elevate their spirits, encourage their hearts, and empower their futures. Let us reimagine tomorrow's possibilities for these young minds, making a lasting impact.
