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 2020, we are donating more than $17 million to fund football, basketball, cheer, dance, and step programs at local Boys & Girls Clubs across the country through corporate and Guest donations. In 2016, Buffalo Wild Wings was able to provide $4.1 million dollars to fund ALL STARS grants to expose more kids to the benefits of participating in team sports and belonging to a team.

Join the effort through purchasing a sauce or seasoning bottle where $1 from each bottle goes to Boys & Girls Clubs of America, or dine-in during our annual ALL STARS Fundraiser October 1–31 where you can show your support with a pinup for $1 or more or get a limited edition wristband (while supplies last) for $5 or more. With your support, we can help change the game.

Playing sports is about igniting a passion, belonging to a team, sportsmanship, teamwork and building self-esteem through 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.

Buffalo Wild Wings is proud to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). Together, we can help fulfill our mission to bring team sports into the lives of kids who need it most.

In 2016, Buffalo Wild Wings helped over 85,000 kids belong to a team through ALL STARS grants that add or improve football, cheer, dance and basketball programs at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country.

Together, we’ll give more than 450,000 kids the chance to be part of a team by 2020, by donating and raising more than $17 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.

We teamed up with the Greater Dallas Boys & Girls Club to showcase just how Guest donations make a difference. New scoreboard? Check. New Bleachers? Check. Fans in the stands to cheer on the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Dallas as they enjoy a newly renovated field with pro QB? Double check.

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.

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.
