Since 1984, IN-N-OUT BURGER has underwritten all of the administrative costs of 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.
The In-N-Out Burger Foundation’s purpose is to assist children who have been victims of child abuse, and to prevent others from suffering a similar fate. The Foundation supports organizations that provide residential treatment, emergency shelter, foster care, and early intervention for children in need.
The Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is supported primarily through donor contributions and internal fundraising activities sponsored by In-N-Out Burger. In addition, In-N-Out Burger pays all costs associated with The Foundation, so that every penny raised goes directly to help abused and neglected children!
“You are safe here and you don’t need a lock on your door because everyone is safe here and we are a family and we are surrounded by love.”
The Teen Project has been supported by the Foundation since 2008.
The Foundation is supported primarily through donor contributions
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.

The In-N-Out Burger Foundation’s purpose is to assist children who have been victims of child abuse, and to prevent others from suffering a similar fate. Each year we award grants ranging from $2,000 and $20,000 to agencies in the areas where In-N-Out Burger does business that most closely match our purpose.
The In-N-Out Burger Foundation will consider support for organizations who meet the following criteria
While requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, applicants should note that the In-N-Out Burger 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.
Many factors are taken into consideration in choosing the organizations and programs that will receive funding. These include but are not limited to the following:
We evaluate grant requests through the organization's programs, accomplishments, leadership and finances. Organizations must be well-managed, fiscally sound, have a developed history and maintain a record of program integrity
Grants are reviewed and awarded on an annual basis using the following schedule (*subject to change).
Unfortunately, the Foundation is able to fund only a limited number of the total requests we receive. If a particular request meets funding criteria but does not receive support, one should not interpret this as an indication of the Foundation's lack of appreciation for the merit and worthiness of either the request or the organization seeking support. We welcome those organizations to reapply. While there is no guarantee of ongoing support, there are no limitations on how many times an organization can apply. Each request is reviewed on its individual merit, and decisions are not based on prior year submittals. Therefore, an agency must reapply each year.
When the Foundation awards a grant, the grantee will be asked to provide a brief final report on the use of the grant funds and the accomplishments of the funded project. This status report is required for prior year grantees and will be a part of the online application process. It must be submitted in order for the organization to be considered for funding in future years.
If your organization meets the required criteria, we encourage you to apply using our online software. You will be required to submit the following with your online application:
