EngagementMatters365: Donor report shows health is #1

KampCo Restaurants Give Back

Nine KampCo locations across Oklahoma and Texas, including five Johnny Carino’s restaurants and four Kamp 1910 Café diners, are partnering with Community Health Charities and hosting Give Back Nights, encouraging customers to donate as they dine.

“We have employees facing all kinds of health issues. As we look around at our employees and neighborhoods, and the communities around us, we see many needs,” said Randy Kamp, founder of KampCo. “We believe we have an obligation to use our resources to give back and we are excited to support such worthy causes and make a difference in our local communities.”

KampCo will also donate 10% of proceeds at all locations for one night as part of their CHC campaign kickoff.

DONOR REPORT SHOWS HEALTH IS #1

A recent survey of donors in the U.S. found that donors prefer larger, more recognizable nonprofits that provide health impact. Even though donors were not prompted with a list, 36% named a large charity, including ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the American Cancer Society.

Nearly 1 in 3 of those surveyed named a health-related charity, making health the number one supported cause
