Burger King's charitable arm, The McLamore Foundation, has launched its annual fall fundraiser in support of the company's Scholars Program.
Through Oct. 31, guests who donate $1 at participating BK restaurants in the U.S. will receive an education-themed booklet containing three soft serve cone coupons and three value size Coca-Cola soft drink or ICEE frozen drink coupons.
The fundraising campaign is the largest in-restaurant promotion hosted by the McLamore Foundation. The coupons may be redeemed at participating restaurants through Dec. 31. All proceeds benefit the Burger King Scholars Program.
"Building brighter futures through the Burger King Scholars Program is a top priority for us," said Andrea Tejada, executive director, McLamore Foundation. "Through the fall fundraiser, we all have the opportunity to help support higher education for deserving students in the communities where we work and live."
In addition to $1,000 awards, this year's program includes 10 $10,000 employee-designated scholarships, and three $50,000 James W. McLamore Whopper Scholarship awards. Students may use scholarship funds for two- or four-year college degrees, as well as for accredited technical and vocational programs. A bilingual application web portal provides students the opportunity to complete the application in either English or Spanish.
