Team Up For Kids®

We have a passion for sports and we believe there is a champion in every child. It’s the core of our vision for community giving.

Team Up For Kids


We're teaming up with Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) to help more kids play team sports. By 2017 we are donating more than $6 million to BGCA, including corporate donations, donations from sauce and seasoning bottle sales and fundraising events in our restaurants around the country.

Playing sports is about igniting a passion, belonging to a team, sportsmanship, teamwork and building self-esteem through a great play. We believe every child should have the chance to experience team sports and learn the life lessons and skills that will help them thrive and compete in life. That’s why we’re committed to helping all kids have the opportunity to play on a team.

Our commitment to helping make our communities a better place to live, work and grow is a part of who we are. Since our first restaurants opened, Buffalo Wild Wings, our franchisees and our Guests have given millions of dollars to support local community and school organizations, teams, and those in need.


Buffalo Wild Wings Guests voted on their favorite Sauce Lab features. Our Ghost Pepper and Bourbon Honey Mustard flavors won!  These fan favorites are available in-restaurant September and October, and for the first time, in bottles to take home! It’s a win for Boys & Girls Clubs of America too. 

We’ll donate $1 for every bottle we sell to Boys & Girls Clubs of America to support our Team Up for Kids mission. Stop on in today, pick up a winning sauce and support a great cause!


Visit Buffalo Wild Wings in October! Buy a Team Up for Kids pinup at any Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant and you’ll be making a donation to Boys & Girls Clubs of America. We’ll give 100% of your donation to support youth sports through our Team Up for Kids mission.

In 2015, Buffalo Wild Wings will help more than 35,000 kids belong to a team through ALL STARS grants that add or improve football, cheer and basketball programs at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. To see if your community received an ALL STARS grant in 2015, click here.

Together, we’ll give more than 100,000 kids the chance to be part of a team by 2017, by donating and raising more than $6 million for Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Our commitment supports BGCA’s work to build Great Futures for America’s kids. Boys & Girls Clubs serve nearly four million youth, providing a safe and productive place to go in their communities. Over 4,000 Clubs across the country provide positive role models, next-generation curriculum, and great sports programs like ALL STARS.

Giving In Our Communities

We’re supporting Boys & Girls Clubs in communities around the country. This year, Buffalo Wild Wings is donating as much as $40,000 in Team Up for Kids and ALL STARS grants to help more than 210 Clubs make significant improvements in their sports programs and facilities. These Clubs will be empowered to attract and serve even more members with fun and valuable sports experiences.  Together, we can all make a difference in the lives of kids!

In April, we hosted Community Day at more than 750 restaurants and donated 10% of our total sales to local Boys & Girls Clubs. It was a great way for our Guests to join our efforts in making a positive impact in our communities, and we gave over $540,000 to Clubs across the country

Eat Wings, Raise Funds.

We recognize that needs can vary greatly from one community to another. That’s why we’ve created a program that allows each of our restaurants to help raise funds for organizations in their local community. With our Eat Wings, Raise Funds. program, when you dine, we donate. Since its inception, Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants have donated more than $1 million to local organizations that assist youth and families in need, military families and disaster relief efforts.

Buffalo Wild Wings® believes that teamwork builds the foundation for a successful community and our goal is to help make your community the best place to live, work, play and dine.

National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation and PROSTART®

Helping feed dreams and build futures through our support of education and development.

Buffalo Wild Wings is dedicated to sharing our passion for developing
 people. This year we'll donate $90,000 to the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation to establish six scholarships for the hospitality industry. By 2017, we'll have donated $385,000 and provide 36 Buffalo Wild Wings scholarships to help young adults achieve their career aspirations.  

The scholarships also support the ProStart program, which helps educate and develop high school students to become leaders in the hospitality industry.  The ProStart program reaches more than 95,000 students in 1,700 high schools across 47 states, Guam, and U.S. military bases.

In addition, to help the dreams of Minnesota students come true, we provided two $2,500 Buffalo Wild Wings Founders' Scholarships to high school seniors who are pursuing careers in the culinary field.
