White Castle Announces New Giving Program That Focuses on Local Causes and Organizations in Need White Castle is launching a new companywide philanthropy program to give its 10,000+ team members more input on the recipients of its charitable donations. Recognizing that local nonprofits were among the hardest hit during the pandemic, White Castle will ask each of its restaurant markets to raise money for the charitable causes most important to their respective team members and communities.
White Castle introduced this new program, called "District Charity of Choice," as a pilot in 2021 as part of its 100th birthday celebration. The company's restaurant operations are divided geographically into a few dozen districts. Each district worked with team members to identify local causes they wanted to support. For a few weeks during the year, the restaurants invited customers to round up their check to the nearest dollar, with the additional money going to the selected local charities.
All combined, White Castle's 350 restaurants raised more than $1.1 million for 48 different charities.
