How it Works

The Five Guys fundraising process is simple and when it’s all said and done, they’ll donate 20% of the total event sales back to your group!

  1. Find the perfect Five Guys location for your group and its supporters
  2. Choose your date and time
  3. Fill out some basic information about your organization
  4. Show up on the day of your event to eat and earn!

Once you’ve submitted your Five Guys fundraiser request, all you need to do is what comes naturally: Make plans with friends and family, talk and post on social media about your event, and spread the word! You can use your personalized Meal Page to keep track of RSVPs and automatically remind all those hungry attendees the day-of of your event.


On the day of your event, just bring your appetites to that glorious red-and-white counter. Be sure each of your supporters lets the cashier know that they’re there to support your group’s cause!


After that, your organization can look for a check straight from Five Guys for 20% of what your group and its supporters devoured on the day of your event! It’s as simple as wiping your hands after that last crispy french fry.
