Interested parties can join the Partner Program at any point throughout the year. However, since the program operates on a calendar year, we strive to get as many people signed up during Q3 each year for the following year.

No. While most partner program participants are current suppliers of the brand, we have partners who join the program prior to becoming an official supplier.

We strive to provide our partners with meaningful experiences at each of our events. Depending on the purpose of the event and location, our events range in size from 50-300 attendees.

Charity Navigator is America’s largest independent charity evaluator and has issued the Inspire Brands Foundation (including Buffalo Wild Wings Foundation) a 4-star rating, the highest possible rating. The 4-star rating is a result of the Foundation’s commitment to sound fiscal management, accountability and transparency.

“We view it as our responsibility to support this wonderful initiative and are proud to do so.

It’s inspiring to our teams to be difference makers.”

Alicia Howard, Marketing Manager, Howard Group, Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee
