Charitable Giving Programs
Reaching Out to Those in Need
At Pampered Chef®, we have a long-standing tradition of giving. Our founder, Doris Christopher, has always believed in the importance of giving back and helping others. While our company has gone through many changes since it was founded in her basement in 1980, one thing remains the same—Pampered Chef’s commitment to helping others and bringing families together.
Round-Up from the Heart®
At Pampered Chef®, we know that not every family has enough to eat—so we’re committed to helping as many families as possible. We want to help set a place at the table for everyone, so we’ve partnered with Feeding America® in the fight against hunger. Our Round-Up from the Heart® program offers three ways to help provide meals to those in need. You can round up your order, which benefits your local Feeding America® network food bank, buy our designated Round-Up from the Heart® products, or hold a fundraiser to support the Feeding America® national office.
Help Whip Cancer®
Pampered Chef® joins forces with the American Cancer Society® to raise funds for breast cancer education and early detection programs with our Help Whip Cancer® campaign. Throughout May and October, Pampered Chef® consultants raise money from the sale of exclusive products, hold fundraisers, and share information about the importance of regular breast cancer screenings and checkups.
Since 2000, Pampered Chef® has supported the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences in Urbana-Champaign. In 2006, Doris Kelley Christopher Hall opened at the University of Illinois to house the Family Resiliency Center. This world-class center is the home of innovative research, education, and outreach initiatives to enrich the well-being of children, individuals, and families. Mealtime Minutes are practical mealtime solutions to make gathering together around the table the best part of your family’s day.
