Setting Up Your Golden Corral Fundraising Event

When it comes to fundraising with Golden Corral, it’s impossible to find a downside. Hosting a Golden Corral fundraising event is fun and delicious – and above all, you’ll get to partner with a generous restaurant that’s seriously dedicated to making a positive impact. Setting up your Golden Corral fundraising event is easy. It takes just 1 minute and looks like this:


  1. Choose your favorite Golden Corral location
  2. Select a date and time that works well for your group
  3. Complete some basic info about your group
  4. Submit!



It doesn’t matter whether you are a PTA, college club, charity, or church – any group can fundraise! Requests should be submitted at least 2 weeks in advance so the restaurant has enough time to confirm the event and prepare for your group.


Once you get the confirmation, blast your event’s unique GroupRaise Meal Page to all your family, friends, and supporters so they can RSVP. Facebook, Instagram, email, phone calls – use it all. The more people attend, the more money you earn for your group or charity! Check out our post about how to promote/host a successful restaurant fundraiser for more tips and advice.


During your event, your attendees just have to mention that they are dining in support of your organization, and a percentage of their order will be donated back. Finally, within 4-6 weeks after your fundraiser, Golden Corral will send your organization a check for 15% of the sales from your group.


Once you’ve seen for yourself how easy and fun Golden Corral fundraising is, you’ll be itching to host another event. Good news: you can hold as many as you want!
