Created in 1992 by Wendy's® founder, Dave Thomas, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national, nonprofit public charity dedicated to dramatically increasing the number of adoptions of children waiting in foster care in the United States.
Through its signature Wendy's Wonderful Kids program, the Foundation provides funding to adoption agencies to hire recruiters who are focused on finding forever families for every child, including teenagers, children with special needs and siblings. These recruiters use an evidence-based, child-focused recruitment model that is up to three times more effective at serving children who have been lingering in foster care the longest.
To date, Wendy's Wonderful Kids recruiters have found adoptive homes for more than 9,000 children.
Donate today to help give every child waiting in foster care the permanent, loving family they deserve.
