Regal Foundation

The Regal Foundation was established in 2003 as a non-profit charitable organization to coordinate support for numerous national and local philanthropic groups. The Regal Foundation supports the communities in which Regal operates by partnering with selected charities to aid the initiatives of national and local charitable entities dedicated to the assistance of persons affected by economic, social, physical or educational disadvantages in the following four areas: education, health, military, and children & family .

Some of our national partners include: The American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Variety – The Children’s Charity. Additionally, Regal supports many other local, regional and national charities across the U.S.

All grant application and donation requests undergo careful consideration by the Regal Foundation Board to ensure grants provide the greatest benefit to the greatest number of people.

Ways We Partner with Moviegoers to Give Back

Regal hosts an annual summer fundraiser called "Stars of Hope" where guests are invited to donate $1 or more to help Regal Foundation’s many partners. Additionally, a “Holiday Round Up” campaign allows moviegoers to round up purchases at the concessions stand. All proceeds from these two initiatives benefit the Regal Foundation.



Each summer, Regal also hosts the nine-week Summer Movie Express where moviegoers of all ages can climb aboard to enjoy a great selection of G and PG rated movies for a discounted.

Special Programs
