What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Double Good Kids Foundation was established in 2017 with the mission to serve children with special needs so that they can equitably experience athletic, educational and extracurricular experiences. Over the past 5 years, Double Good has collaborated with like-minded and committed organizations to provide equipment, volunteers, financial resources and, of course our award-winning popcorn, that support children nationwide facing physical, neurological and social barriers. Today, Double Good is taking on more ownership of the Foundations mission and has created a proprietary event to serve children with special needs on a grander scale. We've designed a joy-filled day of hands-on activities for all abilities. Double Good Days premiered on a warm and sunny October 1, 2023 at the Kohl Children's Museum. We plan to host this event annually in Chicago, while expanding to other locations every year.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Apr 01 - Mar 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Founder & CEO

Tim Heitmann

My Double Good journey started on Chicago's Navy Pier in 1998 while tasting a handful of popcorn so delicious it changed my perception of popcorn forever. This journey found purpose when years later, I received a letter from a child in Seattle, WA about how selling our popcorn made it possible for him to cover the costs to attend a school band competition in Washington D.C.. That was the moment I realized that fundraising created joy, and creating joy was more important than retail and wholesale profits. Today, 25 years later, I support a leadership team and organization that inspires me every day with their passion for customer experience and talent for getting things done. When kids do what they love, that’s good. When every kid can do what they love, that’s Double Good. It’s the impact our customers make in their communities that drives us. We are all committed to continue to Create Joy and to increase the impact our customers make on the causes that matter most to them.
