Monterey Jack's Charity & Good Deeds Programme

From March 2024, we are proud to launch our new Charity and good deeds programme. Our on-going commitment to help local good causes and charities in your area continues. So far we have raised and donated in excess of £500k of goods and services to help out in the communities we operate within. Recently awarded the ‘Point of light’ award by the UK Government for our charitable achievements, we continue the good work and with the assistance of our fantastic customers there is much more we continue to do.

We have recently begun our ‘Good causes nomination programme’ where the public can contact us and nominate local good causes in their area who would benefit from our donations. Simply follow us on our social pages and message us with your nominations.

Whether it’s a food bank, a local under-funded charity, a fund-raising project for good causes or any charity struggling to cope in difficult times – we’d love to hear from you and add them to our list of potential beneficiaries. We add a nominal £1 to each table – whether it’s 2 people or 20 people on a voluntary basis – to help fund this programme. Without the generosity of our guests, our good deeds programme would be significantly less impactful. For this we humbly thank all who participate.

Below is an example of the great work we have done with the Cash for Kids charity.

Monterey Jack’s hits £100k target for Cash for Kids! 

Monterey Jack’s American dining restaurant and cocktail bar have announced their fundraising efforts for Cash for Kids across all their Scottish restaurants. Their aim was to raise £100K to support local disadvantage children and they have exceeded this.

All restaurants across Scotland have been asking customers to donate a pound onto their bill, the staff have also been participating in Cash for Kids pillar campaigns such as Cash for Kids Day, Mission Christmas, and also in The Kiltwalk which helped them reach this incredible amount of £130,000!

Scott Abercrombie, Chief operating officer at Monterey Jacks said: “We are totally thrilled to have reached our target – exceeding £130k for our amazing charity partner! We wish to express a heartfelt thanks to the generosity of our awesome customers and of course to our entire team for their work and dedication helping us to meet our pledge…And – we will continue our efforts, as always on behalf of all the good causes we support and hopefully over the next year exceed this amount for our wonderful friends at Cash For Kids and all those in Scotland they support!”

Grace Reilly, Regional Charity Manager at Radio Clyde Cash for Kids, said: “Child poverty in Glasgow and the West of Scotland is at its highest and through the support of corporates like Monterey Jack’s asking customers to donate a pound on the bill, we’re able to ensure children living in some of the most disadvantaged areas receive food and activities throughout the school holidays”
