CPK is Hosting Fundraisers For College Clubs

Posted by Jessica Voorhees

Want to add a little more purpose to your next pizza night out with friends? California Pizza Kitchen joined GroupRaise to host fundraisers for college clubs, and they want to donate a sizable slice of profits to your cause. All you have to do is book your fundraiser with CPK online, invite your friends, then kick back and enjoy a delicious meal. It’s completely free, and they’ll send you 20% of the profits earned from your event!

How to book your fundraiser with CPK

It only takes 3 minutes to book your event with CPK, and you can set it up in three steps through GroupRaise:

  • Select a CPK near you, a date and a time.
  • Estimate your expected number of attendees.
  • Enter your contact information and submit!

Make sure your supporters RSVP to the event online, and they’ll receive a reminder the night before your fundraiser so they don’t forget to go. During your booked event time, your friends can dine in or take out; they just need to mention they came to support you for the money to go toward your fundraiser.


After your event, you’ll receive an email letting you know how much money you raised. Then in 4-6 weeks, CPK will send a check to your preferred address with 20% of your fundraiser’s net sales!

Students share their experiences hosting at CPK

Here are some testimonials from students who have used CPK to host fundraisers for college clubs.


University of Colorado Boulder: UC Men’s Club Hockey Team

George, a member of the UC Men’s Club Hockey Team, said he wanted to host an event at CPK to spread his club’s name in the Boulder community. “We had a nice experience at CPK,” George said. “Overall it was a great team event with great food and drinks.”


Montclair State University: Delta Xi Delta

College clubs are already fundraising at CPK. Here, Delta Xi Delta is one of the pioneers

Delta Xi Delta at Montclair State University decided to host a fundraiser at CPK to support its philanthropic goals. The sorority’s president Rachel said,

“It’s a super easy way to raise some money for our sorority’s philanthropy in addition to eating some great food or even trying something new. It’s another chance throughout an average week for our sisters to come together and enjoy some lunch or dinner together while raising money to donate to our favorite cause. We’ll definitely be back soon!”


Utah Valley University: UVU Social Work

Marisa, a member of UVU’s Social Work program said her group chose CPK because it was close to the university and other students could easily find it to stop by for the event. “Everyone had an enjoyable experience dining there and it was easy for those dining to have a portion of their meal donated to our club,” Marisa said.
