Raising Money for Your Cause with a McAlister’s Fundraiser

Posted by Aswin John

McAlister’s Deli has over 400 locations in 28 states across the U.S. Along with great food and a friendly environment, McAlister’s prides itself on involvement in local communities. They actively look to help local schools, churches, non-profits, and other organizations within their community, which makes the McAlister’s fundraiser perfect for your group’s next event.

At a McAlister’s fundraiser, members and supporters of your organization dine at McAlister’s and 20% of sales from your group’s meals goes back to you!

Imagine fundraising while hosting an event where you:

  • Spread the word of your organization to the local community
  • Come together and meet the family and friends of your members
  • Meet monthly or quarterly with your organization

While everyone is relaxing and bonding over great food in a family friendly environment, your organization is getting 20% back towards your fundraising goals!

McAlister's fundraisers are a delicious way to raise money for your group.

How do I organize a McAlister’s fundraiser?

McAlister’s has made it simple for local organizations to request a restaurant fundraiser with them. Simply:

  1. Select a location near you
  2. Pick a date and time
  3. Provide basic information about your organization
  4. Submit your request!

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 your event is confirmed, it’s time to spread the word! Every McAlister’s fundraiser that your organization hosts must have at least 20 RSVPs. Attendees can be family, friends, members, or anyone that will come to support your event!

The more people you bring, the merrier! Every person that comes to the restaurant during your event and says they’re with your organization will have 20% of their bill added to your donation total!

After the event, McAlister’s will send you the check for the total within 4-6 weeks.
