Cones for a Cause is a community powered micro-grant foundation committed to driving social change in the Greater Dayton area.
At its inception Cones for a Cause was born out of a desire to provide impactful contributions to local non-profit organizations where a smaller donation would make a difference. Encouraging guests at Old Scratch to make donations, by way of sweet treats, we can leverage community support to increase the impact of those small organizations. 100% of guest donations fund
micro-grants to local non-profit organizations.
Cones for a Cause micro-grants fund special projects that aid our community, and since 2016 the fund has donated over $172,000 to 70 local non-profits. A list of our recent grantees can be found here.
Old Scratch Pizza guests enjoy free ice cream cones served in all our restaurants and in exchange, the guests have the opportunity to make a donation to the fund.
Old Scratch Pizza and the CFAC program are committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity in our community. We take a non-discriminatory approach when awarding grants and provide an equal opportunity for organizations, and by extension, the people they serve, to access resources that will further their missions. We believe all people, of any ethnicity, race, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic circumstance, physical and mental abilities, and philosophy are entitled to services and support that will better their circumstances, leveraging their voice and impact in the Dayton community.
