As safety measures evolve, it’s more important than ever that people in your area know how they can still order from your restaurant. We’ve revamped the fundraiser experience to allow you to communicate your evolving order methods to community leaders interested in bringing their communities to you.
What is a Takeout Fundraiser?
Just like a standard dine-in restaurant fundraiser, organizers in your area request to host a fundraiser with your restaurant then promote to their community. On the day of the event, their supporters mention the name of the group when ordering and you then donate a percentage of their sales back to the organization.
With Takeout Fundraisers, the only difference is that supporters can participate via any alternative order methods you offer--such as takeout, curbside pickup, or delivery--and we give you priority in our listings and marketing
How do I host Takeout Fundraisers?
- Log in and look for the Event Settings section in your GroupRaise dashboard
- Scroll down to Take-Out & Delivery Policies and click on the Edit/Take-out Delivery button
- Check Allow, choose your order preferences and click Update Event Settings Group!
How do organizers know I host Takeout Fundraisers?
Prioritized Marketing: You will be included in exclusive promotional campaigns that inform your community about restaurants offering COVID-friendly alternatives in their area. We have also designed special promo materials for organizers hosting fundraisers with you to help them spread the word about your alternative order options.
Takeout Badge in Listings: We will also add a Takeout badge to your restaurant in our community listings to let organizers know that you have COVID-friendly alternative order methods. This badge feature will be available beginning in mid-August.
Higher Ranking in Search Listings: We are now giving priority to restaurants who offer alternative order methods as part of their fundraising program. By enabling Takeout Fundraisers, you will rank above other local restaurants who are not currently offering this.
How will fundraiser supporters know my off premises order options?
We will include all of your takeout preferences on the Online Meal Promotion Page of the event. They will be able to view these preferences any day leading up to and on the day of the event.
I signed up for this already, do I need to do anything to set it up?
If you responded to an email invitation from our team anytime in the last few months saying you would like to participate, we are currently in the process of setting up your account for alternative order methods. We will email you once this is done so you can make any necessary changes. You can expect to hear from us within a week of opting in.
