The Good Bowl Charity Model
Since day one making an impact and contributing to local, national and global nonprofits has been part of The Good Bowl’s DNA via our $1 per bowl donation to charities program. The recipient organizations are nonprofits rooted in humanitarian and environmental efforts are selected by our guests and employees and rotate each quarter.
Due to the last year’s incidents around George Floyd and recent uptick in violence against Asian Americans, we will be focusing all of Q2 charitable efforts to nonprofits that create initiatives to support equality for all groups and fight against racism.

Donations will be focused on Title Track’s work for Racial Equity, including training programs for BIPOC facilitators, scholarships for the “Understanding Racial Justice” program and support for their partnership with Northern Michigan E3, which focuses its efforts on how to educate, elevate and engage the community around anti-racism.
