The Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving® is a large part of what sets Wireless Zone® apart from our competition. It was founded in 2003 with the realization that as local business owners, we wanted to support our communities as much as they support us.
Today we continue to raise a significant amount of money and support a large number of local and national charities and causes. We have time-honored relationships with Autism Speaks, Make-A-Wish, Children’s Tumor Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Best Friends Animal Society, Homes for Our Troops, Sandy Hook Promise and No Kid Hungry by Share Our Strength.
Everyone at Wireless Zone®, from franchisees to corporate employees, plays a role in our efforts to give back. On top of our system-wide fundraising campaigns, each year Wireless Zone® franchisees and employees nominate a local charity for a Foundation grant. We’ve shown year after year that we really can positively impact the lives of those around us in meaningful ways.
2019 Success Stories
The Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving® granted over half a million dollars in 2019.
- 203 franchisee- and corporate employee-nominated charities received Foundation grants. This was a 60% increase over the number of charities nominated and awarded in 2018.
- 39 of the nominated charities received special project grants.
- The balance was awarded to our national charity partners including Autism Speaks, Best Friends Animal Rescue, Children’s Tumor Foundation, Homes for our Troops, Make-A-Wish, No Kid Hungry, Sandy Hook Promise and St. Jude Hospital and Research Center.
Through in-store roundup campaigns, we asked our customers to help us support national charities, and as a result, were able to collect additional donations for Autism Speaks and Sandy Hook Promise. We could not have done it without the support of the owners, managers, sales associates and the entire Wireless Zone® family.
