Join Big Al’s as we raise money for Santa Cops of Larimer County.

At Big Al’s your small change can make a big difference! In place of having the traditional Tip Jar, Big Al’s staff decided to make a positive impact in our community with the Big Change Jar. Each month the Big Al’s team gets to choose a cause that is important to them. All money collected throughout that month is then donated to the selected cause. And then Big Al’s tops it all off with an additional donation!

Thanks to our generous guests and our hard working staff, Big Al’s change has thus far provided emergency rent and gas money to local veterans, therapeutic opportunities for the youth in need in Fort Collins, food and medical services to our homeless animals, research funding for sustaining our beautiful Northern Colorado environment and so much more!

The Big Change Jar has donated $109,600 and counting back into the community since the opening of Big Al’s Burgers and Dogs in June, 2010!
