Community is at the core of Shake Shack. We’re dedicated (and proud!) to give back to local cultural and educational neighborhood organizations, and also do our part to help various causes from food sustainability to the environment.
We’ve got a great, big heart, and we love to give back. Know that we’ll do our best to consider as many requests as possible, however we won’t be able to accommodate them all.
Shack’s ongoing mission is to Stand for Something Good® in everything we do, and that includes donations in-kind, non-profit partnerships and support for fundraisers and auctions that we contribute to. Our community efforts are based on the following framework, and that makes for one well-built (and good) Shack!
Hunger Relief & Food Sustainability
Education & Community Groups
Health & Environment
Arts & Culture
