How It Works

Host A Community Fundraiser!

foundraiser

Host a Community Fundraiser at your local Isaac’s and we’ll reward your organization with 25% of sales from customers who share your values!  A minimum of $100 in sales is required. It’s as easy as picking any day of the week, reworking the flyer we email to you, and then inviting your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to come out and eat any time throughout the day!

There are no upfront costs, selling, or soliciting…and everyone needs to eat!  Past fundraising groups have said this is the easiest fundraiser they’ve ever done.

For more information or to book a fun and easy Community Fundraiser, please email Debra Miller, Community Care Coordinator, at dmiller@isaacsdeli.com or call her at 717-394-0623, ext. 22.

Sell 500 of these popular gift cards and your group will earn $750. Sell $1,000…well, the sky’s the limit!

What days of the week can I book a fundraiser?
We do fundraisers every day of the week.
What time are the fundraisers?
Monday – Saturday: 10am – 9pm and Sunday: 11am – 8pm.
Downtown Lancaster, Downtown York and Paxton Street locations will have different hours.
How soon can we schedule a fundraiser?
You can book your fundraiser TODAY! The earliest you can hold your fundraiser is generally 4 weeks from the date of your Application.
How much does Isaac’s contribute to my organization?
Isaac’s donates 25% of food and beverage sales (pretax) from people coming specifically to support your fundraiser.  Supporters need to bring a flyer to hand in when paying or show it on their phone. The more people you bring, the bigger our donation. There is a minimum of $100 in sales required to receive a check.
How much can I hope to earn with a Community 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 from one night of eating out!
How often can my organization book a Community Night?
Our general rule of thumb is quarterly; however, we are happy to consider special requests.  We like thinking outside the box.
Is one night of the week better than others?
No. It really depends on how hard you work to get people to come out and eat.
Can I schedule a fundraiser at more than one Isaac’s for the same night?
We schedule extra staff for your fundraiser. Because of this, we ask you to book one restaurant only. However, if your organization serves multiple counties, we are willing to consider a second restaurant to better serve your supporter population.
Do I need to design my own flyer?
No. We have a sample flyer we’ll email to you once your date is confirmed. You then plug your information into it, return a draft for approval and then make copies to distribute once approved.  We try to make this entire process as easy as possible. Of course, if you are creative, you can design your own flyer.  Either way, we need to approve it before you start making copies.
Can I hand out flyers in the parking lot or to customers in the restaurant?
No. We reward your organization with 25% of sales from customers you bring to us. We want our regular diners to be able to enjoy their meal while your fundraiser is going on and ask you not to approach them with information or a flyer.
Does Isaac’s publicize our Community Fundraiser for us?

No. You are responsible for advertising your fundraiser although we will list it on the Fundraiser Calendar on our website.  Also, some locations will post it on their Community Board and Facebook page.

To have a successful fundraiser you will want to promote it in your newsletter, post it on your web site (with your approved flyer), send it to your email list, place an ad…get the word out to your friends, family, co-workers, members of your organization, etc.  You may bring a few extra flyers to give to supporters who forget to bring theirs.

You will receive your check in two weeks unless there is an unforeseen delay.
