Your gift immediately becomes care for those in crisis in the place with the highest concentration of need in the nation.  


On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to say thank you for supporting of Big Table through your generous financial contributions and donations of your time.  I speak for everyone on the board as well as the dedicated leadership team and staff of Big Table in saying that we take our responsibilities as stewards of your resources very seriously.

The mission of Big Table is to truly impact and transform the lives of those working in the restaurant and hospitality industry by building community and caring for those in crisis, transition, or falling through the cracks.  Big Table is growing – in donors, care recipients, staff and volunteers – because we are focused on being effective and in achieving our mission in a financially responsible way.

As we expand from our founding and headquarters in Spokane, Washington – first to Seattle and now to the San Diego area – we listen for and are driven by God’s call to care for others.  We are committed to our donors to be thoughtful with our decisions, to stay focused on providing transformational care, to help build community in the restaurant and hospitality industry, and to be good stewards of your invested dollars.

It is a privilege to serve Big Table as chair and I sincerely thank you for your support.
