Pancakes with a purpose.

Enjoy a FREE short stack of our Original Buttermilk Pancakes and donate to help children battling critical illnesses. Every stack served helps us reach our goal of raising $5 million for local children’s hospitals and health organizations. Since IHOP National Pancake Day® began in 2006, IHOP®, our franchisees and our guests have raised close to $30 million for our community partners.
