Every year we award grants to non-profit organizations that most closely match our purpose in communities where In-N-Out Burger does business.
To receive funding from the Slave 2 Nothing® Foundation, each applicant must be a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization that focuses on the elimination and/or prevention of substance abuse and human trafficking in the states of California, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Oregon.
The Slave 2 Nothing Foundation supports two kinds of nonprofit organizations:
Every organization that meets the requirement for funding will be required to go through an intensive 4-step vetting process.
A Slave 2 Nothing team member will:
Step 1: Complete a thorough site visit of the organization’s facilities and observe its programs;
Step 2: Meet with and interview the leadership from each organization to discuss their mission, vision, history, program successes, strategic plans, etc.
If an organization passes the first two steps, they will be invited to complete steps 3 and 4.
Step 3: Each organization completes a detailed application form, which includes sharing their financial statements and 990 tax returns to be evaluated by the Slave 2 Nothing Foundation team to further evaluate their effectiveness, stewardship and integrity.
Step 4: If an organization is selected to move forward to stage 4 in the vetting process, they will be directed to create specific measurable goals of how (if they were to be funded) the funds would be utilized to improve the effectiveness/influence of their organizations.
Final Decision: Once the 4 step vetting process in completed, these organizations will be brought before the Slave 2 Nothing Board of Directors, who makes the final decision on who receives funding.
Funding is provided on an annual basis (once a year).
All funding decisions will be announced at the end of the calendar year (December).
Site visits and interviews can happen throughout the year.
Applications are by invitation only.
