Fatz Cafe has so far raised more than $142,000 through pancake breakfast fundraisers at its various locations throughout the southeastern U.S. Fatz Cafe partners with nonprofits including schools, churches, community groups and youth sports organizations to prepare and host the fundraising breakfasts. Then the proceeds are all donated to the participating nonprofits.

"Our goal is to help as many different community organizations as possible by inviting them to participate in a breakfast fundraiser at Fatz Cafe," said Margo Mize, director of marketing for Fatz Cafe, in a statement. "We value our relationships with these organizations and we hope our combined efforts make a difference in the communities we serve."
