Philanthropy Step 2 of 2:

Chipotle's approach to community investments is pro-active and focused. Since 1993, Chipotle has made it a priority to give back to our communities through food and in-kind donations to local and like-minded organizations. Through our restaurants, we have contributed to local organizations that focus on a variety of areas, including:

  • K-12 Schools & Youth Groups
  • Community Gardens
  • Food and Sustainable Agriculture Groups

Please provide a brief description of the donation request. This is an overview of your request, please include specific information about how the donation will be used and who will be the recipients of the donation

Please feel free to upload any supporting documentation or marketing materials (5MB limit). 

Chipotle works with K-12 schools, youth community groups, university groups, community gardens, and food and sustainable agriculture groups to support your fundraising goals. When you have a fundraiser with us, 50% of the event’s net sales go back to your organization. If approved, a local marketing representative will contact you to cover the details and schedule the date and time. We will also create a flyer for you to email, print and distribute.
