Parents are busy.
Host dinner, your next parent trip meeting, and next fundraiser all at the same time! Many chain restaurants offer fundraising nights where your 501(c)(3) charity can earn 10-25% of the nights’ receipts.
See our wildly popular 20 Chain Restaurants with Fundraising Opportunities for School Trips article for even more restaurant options!
Publicize the fundraising event on your trip website, through school announcements, and publishing the date on the school calendar. Some restaurants will even print flyers for you!
It’s a win-win for the restaurant and the community. The restaurant fills seats on a normally slow night (Mon-Thurs) and may even attract new customers. You are able to host a meeting, eat dinner, fundraise, and build the trip community. Talk about efficient!
