In Our Communities

They are places where communities form, gather and engage. So, we take our commitment to community seriously. Our Team Members have cultivated strong local relationships and take great pride in their engagement with guests and their participation in the communities that they live and work in. TGI Fridays focuses on issues of national significance; Hunger, Shelter, Education and Youth and does so by donating food, sponsoring local groups (including schools and non-profit organizations), and participating and hosting in fundraising events. After natural disasters, our restaurants have been safe havens, offering shelter, hot meals, fellowship and a place for people find comfort, community and even a chance to charge their phones, their only means of communication to their loved ones.
TGI Fridays is proud to be a national sponsor of Feeding America®, the leading domestic hunger-relief charity in the United States. We support Feeding America by raising funds for the organization through the World Bartender Championship competition, the donation of surplus food to local food banks, sponsorship of events and donation of volunteer hours by our team members. In addition to our commitment to the communities we live and work in, TGI Fridays team members are also committed to helping each other.
