Supporting Foster Care Adoption 

In 1992, Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas, who was adopted himself, gave adoption a national platform by creating the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Its mission is to dramatically increase the number of adoptions of children waiting in North America’s foster care systems. 

Through its national awareness campaigns and innovative programs, including Wendy’s Wonderful Kids®, the Foundation is dedicated to achieving the vision that every child will have a permanent home and a loving family. Through the generous support of franchisees, operators, suppliers and customers, Wendy’s has raised more than $300 million over the past three decades.  

Through Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, the Foundation supports the hiring of adoption professionals, known as Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Recruiters, who are dedicated to serving children who have been in foster care the longest. This includes teenagers, children with special needs and siblings. Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters work with smaller caseloads of 12-15 children to ensure that each child receives the time, resources and support they deserve. To date, nearly 13,000 children in the United States and Canada have been adopted through the program.
