"For 60 years, IHOP and our franchisees have made it our mission to support the communities we serve. IHOP National Pancake Day is our declaration to pancake lovers everywhere that we are committed to giving back in meaningful ways," IHOP President Darren Rebelez said. "At IHOP, we think doing good is delicious. Every stack of pancakes we serve on our signature day counts towards helping our charity partners improve the health and lives of millions of children and families across the country."

Since the inception of National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP Restaurants has raised $30 million to support charities in the local communities in which they operate. To mark its milestone 60th year in business, IHOP and its franchisees have set an ambitious goal of raising $5 million nationwide for children’s hospitals and research during the two-month campaign – plus serving a record-breaking 5 million pancakes in a single day.

Between now and March, guests have several ways to support Arkansas Children’s:

Visit any participating IHOP Restaurant on Feb. 27 during event hours and donating to Arkansas Children’s after enjoying a free stack of IHOP’s world-famous Buttermilk Pancakes.

Purchase a wall icon in increments of $1, $5, $20 or $100 between now and Feb. 27 to show support. Guests who purchase a $5 wall icon will receive a $5 coupon good for a future purchase of $10 or more (valid at participating restaurants only).

“For our 13th annual IHOP National Pancake Day, we’re honored to again partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, their local hospital affiliation and other charities focused on giving kids and families the life-saving care they need,” said Stephanie Peterson, Executive Director, Communications at IHOP. “This year will be our biggest fundraising campaign yet, stretching over two months and filled with fun announcements that really reflect the spirit of what this IHOP-created holiday is all about.”

To help bolster efforts, the brand has again teamed up with leading global service organization, Kiwanis International, who will serve as the official volunteer partner for IHOP National Pancake Day.

“We’re thrilled to have Kiwanis International, an exceptional service organization, back as our national volunteer partner and appreciate all that their Club Members do to support our charity partners and IHOP National Pancake Day,” Peterson said.

As the most anticipated event of the year for pancake lovers since 2006, IHOP National Pancake Day has become a pop-culture phenomenon. With the help of millions of guests and communities, IHOP and its franchisees have raised close to $30 million to-date for youth health, wellness and educational organizations.
