Our story started back with our namesake BURGER KING® Co-founder James “Jim” W. McLamore and his belief in the importance of a higher education for all. With the inspiration and intention to honor Jim, the BURGER KING℠ Scholars program was created in 2000. Since then, we have aimed to create brighter futures by empowering individuals and feeding potential through education and emergency relief. As a global Foundation, the BURGER KING McLAMORE℠ Foundation partners with select nonprofits focusing on scholarships, literacy, and creating sustainable learning environments.
