Many restaurants offer nonprofit groups a trendy way to raise money with “Restaurant Night” fundraisers. To make it a successful fundraising night you need to be conscious that although many chain restaurants and franchise restaurants are available for fundraising, the decision to do so is up to the individual restaurant manager. Terms of the fundraiser will differ with each restaurant, even within the identical chain and city at times. Some restaurants might make you present a coupon, tell the waitress ahead of time, drop your receipts in a box, or order only certain items on the menu to meet the criteria.
Numerous locally owned restaurants are also eager to host your “restaurant night” fundraiser as well. Do not forget to include them to your potential list of “restaurant night” fundraiser restaurants. They will often offer you a better deal than the chains and franchisees. If you or someone you know knows the owner, operator, manager, or worker of a restaurant, it would be beneficial to try to go with that restaurant because you could negotiate a better deal for your Nonprofit Organization.
