Charitable Giving

Our Community Efforts

Ludger’s Bavarian Cakery strives to make an impact in the communities and organizations that our families, neighbor and customers all benefit from. We believe strongly in giving back to the communities where we live and work and strive to make a positive impact on the world around us. We receive multiple request each day; therefore requests must be received at least 6 WEEKS PRIOR to the date of your event to give time for review and consideration. Unfortunately, it is not possible to honor all requests and we ask that organizations limit their requests for support to one per calendar year. Due to the high volume of requests we receive, the following guidelines will be followed.

Military Support

At Ludger’s Bavarian Cakery, we recognize the important role the military, veterans and their families play in our nation and want to honor these veterans in a special way. In an ongoing effort to recognize their service and sacrifice, we offer a 10% discount to military personnel and their families.
