October Month of Giving
Eschelon dedicates four months of the year to give back to our core nonprofit partners. We ask our guests to come alongside the restaurants in supporting these amazing causes by adding $1 (or more) to their bill. Our goal for October: Raise $10,000 for Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities!
October 2015 is an Eschelon “Month of Giving” to support Tammy Lynn Center. Each dollar our guests give will be matched by two awesome $2,500 “matchers”: Mako Medical Laboratories and Modern Woodmen. These companies are making sure we’re already half way to our goal with their combined $5,000 donations.
Tammy Lynn Center is a nonprofit that empowers families and enriches the lives of children and adults through education, community, and support services. TLC provides hope and opportunities for individuals to live, learn, and grow to their fullest potential.
Where will the donations go?
All the funds given by our guests and matched by our partners – Mako & Modern Woodmen – will go directly to Tammy Lynn Center.
Your donation supports Tammy Lynn Memorial Foundation which benefits the following services of Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities: Early Childhood Intervention Services, Respite Care, Community Residential and Non-Medicaid Day Services. Tammy Lynn Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Where can I give?
Donate at any Eschelon restaurant during the month of October! 100% of all funds you add to your bill will go directly to Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities.

Millions of people in the United States have developmental disabilities. A developmental disability is a severe, chronic disability which:
- Began at birth or during childhood,
