Give a Hoot/HOOCEF
We love to be out and about serving the community as volunteers, doing charity work, and demonstrating our commitment to the people and the towns we live in. Even some communities we don't live in! You'll see us at your local food bank, animal shelter, beach clean up or fundraiser throughout the year.
Jimmy V Foundation
We’re a proud partner of the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research, and also established a Breast Cancer Research Grant in the name of Kelly Jo Dowd—the beloved 1998 Hooters Calendar Cover Girl who spent the last years of her life battling breast cancer. To date, Hooters has raised more than four million dollars to benefit the V Foundation and the fight against breast cancer.
HOOCARES (Employee Assistance Foundation)
The Hooters Employee Assistance Fund was created to help employees who are facing financial hardship immediately after a natural disaster that has been designated to be covered by the fund. The Hooters Employee Assistance Fund relies primarily on individual donations from employees and support from Hooters to fund this program. Every contribution helps and when combined with the donations of others, can provide the help a fellow employee needs when they are facing the unexpected.
Giving Back(Local Fundraising)
The Hooters Community Endowment Fund raises money for important local and national charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, U.S.O., Special Olympics, American Diabetes Association, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
