We are extremely Honored to be one this year's Grant recipients. Thank you Wendy's

In 2019, Wendy's announced a partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which has now expanded, to support educational and career opportunities for Black students throughout the United States. In Columbus, Wendy's is partnering with the YWCA of Columbus and the Columbus Urban League to help advance their missions of combatting racism and leveling the playing field of racial inequality. In addition, the Company allocated a portion of its $500,000 commitment to be directed by its employees to ensure Wendy's could support worthy causes throughout its global restaurant footprint.

Wendy's field-based employees were eligible to apply for a charitable grant on behalf of a local charitable organization, with a total grant pool of $100,000 available in 2020.
