Jack in the Box has always been a brand that challenges the status quo and encourages people to be true to who they are with zero judgement. This is why we champion the importance of originality and opportunity through our philanthropic arm, the Jack in the Box Foundation. Our mission is to help people access and explore life outside the box.


Through funding local grants in our restaurant communities, we want to help youth challenge barriers holding them back and pursue what inspires them to live life to the fullest, on their own terms.


  • 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations who feed, educate, and empower youth in our restaurant communities are invited to apply for funding.
  • Organizations must be located or serve a population located within 50 miles of a Jack in the Box restaurant to be eligible for grant funding.
  • Applications that include a letter of support from a Jack in the Box franchisee and/or employee will receive special consideration.

The purpose of the Team Jack Relief Fund is to provide short-term financial assistance (up to $2,000) to employees who are impacted by unanticipated and unavoidable emergencies that cause financial hardship and are not otherwise covered by insurance, governmental or private agencies, or through their own personal financial resources. 

Financial hardships can be caused by a range of circumstances including natural disasters, medical illness or injury, being the victim of a crime, and other qualifying events. The Team Jack Relief Fund provides grants to reimburse actual expenses arising from qualified events, so employees can recover more quickly from unexpected financial hardship. Grants are considered non-taxable income; they are not loans and do not have to be repaid. 

Awards are based on financial need and the severity and impact of the emergency on the employee and their immediate family. Applicants will be asked to attest to eligibility requirements and provide documentation to support their application. 

Please note: All applications require Franchise Operator (for employees of franchise restaurants) or District Operators (for employees of corporate restaurants) signature to verify employment status.
