Dining for donations

Your club wants to help save lives. Restaurants need the business. And people always need to eat. This fundraiser is a no-brainer. Encourage patrons to visit a new or favorite restaurant in exchange for a portion of the proceeds from purchases.

Your club will raise funds for The Eliminate Project and help bring in new customers. It’s easy! Follow the tips below.

Best for: All Kiwanis-family clubs

Timeline: 4 weeks for preparation; 2–4 hours on day of event

To-do list:
• Pick a restaurant
• Approach management about details
• Decide what percentage will credit to your club (10-20 percent is the norm)
• Choose a date and time period
• Establish how patrons will identify themselves
• Create an event flier
• Distribute fliers around town
• Have club reps there to welcome guests and hand out information
• Hang a sign to identify The Eliminate Project
• Put out a jar to collect donations from diners
• Follow up with staff to receive your check

Supplies:
• Paper for fliers
• Signage
Quick facts brochure

Reminders:
• Popular chain restaurants have established policies while local eateries may need to work out details with you.
• Some restaurants also offer gift-card matching. Ask about it!
• Monday-Wednesdays may be slow nights for the restaurant. They could benefit from the extra crowd you bring in and may offer you a bigger percentage of the night’s receipts.
• Distribute the Quick facts brochure as guests arrive or leave one on their place setting. Have club members on hand to answer any questions that arise.
