Organizations have the most success when they give themselves 4 weeks to promote their event.

HOW MUCH CAN I HOPE TO EARN WITH A GRAB & GO FUNDRAISER?

It really depends on how well your organization markets the fundraiser, so you control how much you make. Many groups have made over $500 in a single day!

HOW OFTEN CAN MY ORGANIZATION BOOK A GRAB & GO FUNDRAISER?

Our general rule of thumb is quarterly; however, we are happy to consider special requests. We like thinking outside the box.

IS ONE DAY OF THE WEEK BETTER THAN OTHERS?

No. It really depends on how hard you work to get your supporters involved.

DO CATERING ORDERS COUNT?

Yes, as long as the food is ordered on the day of your event. When ordering online, supporters enter “fund” on the payment screen when placing their order. For in person or phone orders, supporters should let our team members know they’re part of your fundraiser.

DO ONLINE ORDERS COUNT?

Yes, as long as the order is placed on the day of your event. When ordering online, supporters enter “fund” on the payment screen when placing their order. For in person or phone orders, supporters should let our team members know they’re part of your fundraiser.

MAY SUPPORTERS USE COUPONS OR LOYALTY PERKS ON FUNDRAISER PURCHASES

No, coupons, discounts and Isaac’s Loyalty Perks are not accepted in coordination with fundraisers.

MAY I SCHEDULE A FUNDRAISER AT MORE THAN ONE ISAAC’S FOR THE SAME DAY?

Fundraisers are scheduled for a single location on a specific day. Occasionally we are able to make accommodations for organizations serving multiple counties. Please reach out to us with special requests at fundraising@isaacsrestaurants.com.

DO I NEED TO DESIGN MY OWN FLYER?

No. We will provide a pdf file for you to email or copy once your date has been approved.

MAY WE HAND OUT FLYERS IN THE PARKING LOT OR TO CUSTOMERS IN THE RESTAURANT?

No. Your donation is tied directly to the supporters who visit on your behalf. If someone is found distributing fliers on our premises, your organization will forfeit their donation.

HOW SOON WILL I GET THE CHECK AFTER MY FUNDRAISER?

You will receive your check 4-6 weeks after your fundraiser.

WILL ISAAC’S PUBLICIZE OUR COMMUNITY FUNDRAISER FOR US?

No. You are responsible for advertising your fundraiser.

To have a successful fundraiser you will want to promote it as much as possible. Organizations often reach out using the following: newsletter, web site, email list, special invitations to friends, family, co-workers and other members of your organization.
