About The Foundation

Esther Snyder and her son Rich established the In-N-Out Burger Foundation to give children hope. Inspired by Esther’s belief that every child deserves a chance and a future, and driven by the family’s own encounter with child abuse, the Foundation supports programs of prevention and assistance to make that future a reality.

What is child abuse?

Child abuse is when a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child. There are many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation and emotional abuse.

With your help, we can help prevent the unconscionable act of child abuse, and change the startling facts that go with it.  Together, let’s help give a voice, and a chance, to abused children everywhere.
