The goal of the Goodcents Foundation is to support those in need – primarily in the areas of food uncertainty, poverty, and disabilities of all types.
We partner with reputable national non-profit organizations throughout the Goodcents franchise system. All funds raised in our restaurants stay in the immediate area to create a better quality of life for people in our communities.
Founded in 2005, The Goodcents Foundation has made significant donations including, but not limited to the following: Alzheimer’s Association, Kansas City Community Gardens, Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership, Salvation Army, Thelma’s Kitchen, and more.
The mission of the Alzheimer’s Association® is to lead the way to end Alzheimer’s and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.
The Goodcents Foundation is proud to partner with the Alzheimer’s Association. Our goal is to raise funds to help support research in the hope of finding a cure for Alzheimer’s — which we know impacts so many people and families in our communities.
