Step 1: Guidelines

The In-N-Out Burger Foundation (the “Foundation”) was established in March 1995 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Child Abuse Foundation’s purpose is to assist children who have been victims of child abuse, and to prevent others from suffering a similar fate. The Child Abuse Foundation supports organizations that provide residential treatment, emergency shelter, foster care, and early intervention for children in need.

The In-N-Out Burger Child Abuse Foundation will consider support for organizations who meet the following criteria:

  1. Eligible applicants must be registered as 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations.
  2. The organization provides residential treatment, emergency shelter, foster care, and/or early intervention for children in need.
  3. Applicants must be located in, or have programs operating within a county where there is an In-N-Out Burger restaurant. Unfortunately, we cannot accept grant requests from outside our area.
Grants are awarded on an annual basis. While there is no guarantee of ongoing support, there are no terms or limitations on how many times an organization can apply. Each request is reviewed on it's individual merit, and decisions are not based on prior year submittals. Therefore, an agency must reapply each year.

Our grants are typically between $2,000 and $20,000 and many factors are considered in determining the amount granted. While requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, applicants should note that the Child Abuse Foundation does not typically fund the entire cost of a program, general operating budget, or capital project. In addition, applicants should request a grant amount that is consistent with a thoughtful and sustainable fundraising approach.

If, after reviewing these Grant Guidelines, you have reason to believe that the Foundation's interest areas and funding preferences are compatible with the need of your organization, we would welcome you to apply for a grant. If you need further clarification or guidance, please feel free to call the Foundation.
