The Andy’s Charitable Foundation began as an outgrowth of our commitment to community involvement. Understanding that Andy’s has been blessed by being involved in communities all over North Carolina, we needed a way to focus the efforts of the Andy’s stores to give back to our many communities and beyond our own backyards.
Andy’s began a golf tournament in 2000 for the purpose of supporting specific charities. (Visit our Golf Tournament website.) After several successful years, Kenny Moore, CEO and President of Andy’s, decided to establish a foundation to better serve a larger number of charities within the operational area of Andy’s. It made its first contributions in November of 2006 and will continue to do this annually
Hwy 55 Burgers Shakes & Fries continues to support this great organization, just as Andy’s Burgers Shakes & Fries has done in the past.
The Andy’s Charitable Foundation is looking forward to impacting our communities in a positive way, and we’d love for you to join us!
Andy’s Charitable Foundation is organized exclusively for the purpose of providing financial support to organizations that are dedicated to improving the communities they serve. Preference is given to organizations located within the Hwy 55 Burger, Shakes and Fries service area that specialize in helping families and youth.
The Board of Trustees of the Andy’s Charitable Foundation meets in May and November each year to consider and make new grants. Grant applications should be made prior to the 15th of May and the 1st of November. All organizations who make application will receive an acknowledgement.
