Wireless Zone Gives

Making a difference

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.

From our family to yours

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 community grant. We’ve shown year after year that we really can positively impact the lives of those around us in meaningful ways.
