Charity & Community
The core value our company was built on
Building a strong community is one of the core values our company was built upon. We feel strongly that each of us has a certain obligation to help make our world a better place, and we are privileged to serve and give back to communities we care so deeply about. Through financial giving, time, and resources, we have proudly donated more than $3.5 million to local organizations since we opened our doors in 1996.
We have two options for non-profit organizations to take advantage of our generous financial giving programs, though our charity match and Gridiron Society.
Gift Card Matching
We’ll be honest – we have a hard time saying no. Unfortunately, the requests have far outstripped our capacity to give. In this spirit, we have created a donor-aided matching program. It works like this: every gift card you purchase at full value, we will match. For example, if you purchase a $100 gift card, we will match it to create a $200 gift card for your fundraising needs. To take advantage of our gift card matching program, complete the online form or download a pdf.
Investors and Gridiron Society Members
Another option for your auction is through a Gridiron Society Member (an invitation-only club exclusive to El Gaucho Hospitality restaurants), or Investor. Members and investors are able to annually donate a Chef’s Wine Dinner for Four at any of our restaurants to the charity of their choice. While we do not publish names, ask if you have a Gridiron member or Investor on your board or procurement committee to tap into this resource.
