Employee Emergency Relief Fund
Through this employee emergency relief fund, we are able to offer financial assistance to team members who are in financial arrears due to an unexpected crisis, which threatens their well-being or that of their family. Funded by our team members who voluntarily donate a small amount of every paycheck, over $1 million has been raised to aid more than 1000 teammates through an unanticipated emergency.

In partnership with the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation, every year the CraftWorks Foundation offers four $2,500 scholarships to students aspiring careers in this rapidly growing industries.
We value local charity partnerships, thus all CraftWorks Foundation giving comes through the relationships local charities develop with our restaurants. By leveraging our restaurants' resources of people, money, time and hospitality, we successfully fundraise hundreds of thousands of dollars and volunteer hundreds of hours to worthy causes every year. Common fundraisers include percentage of sales nights, tapping parties, and tap take overs. Through these efforts we not only raise funds for hundreds of nonprofit partners across the country, but help to spread their mission and raise awareness about important community issues.
