Kroc Center – Omaha, NE

Omaha, NE



Joan Kroc, the widow of McDonald's restaurants' founder Ray Kroc, bequeathed $1.5 billion to the Salvation Army solely for the purpose of establishing centers of opportunity, education, recreation, and inspiration to be known as "Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Centers". According to the trust, a Kroc Center is to be highly visible and easily accessible; to be within reach of various economic groups with particular outreach to underserved families; to have high quality service within world-class facilities; and to include programs involving education, fitness, arts, and worship. The centers are to be owned and operated by the Salvation Army throughout the United States.
