Noodles and Company Fundraising: How It Works

Here’s the scoop on how Noodles and Company fundraising works. It only takes 1 minute to set up your fundraiser!


  1. Choose your Noodles and Company location
  2. Select a date and time range for your fundraiser
  3. Complete some basic information about your organization
  4. Submit!



Please note: Noodles and Company welcomes groups with a W-9 form, which simply shows that your organization pays taxes.


Make sure to submit your request at least 30 days before your event date. Then, Noodles and Company has 7 days to respond to your request.


You’ll get an email when your group is good to go–and you’ll want to start shouting the news from the rooftops the moment it hits your inbox. Encourage your group to spread the word about its fundraiser through fliers, word-of-mouth, social media, and any other platforms your group members can think of. Remember, the more supporters you can gather for your fundraiser, the more you’ll earn!

Day-of, every person that comes to the restaurant during your event and says they’re with your organization will have a portion of their bill added to your donation total. Delicious noodles + a fun time with your supporters + funds for your group = the best fundraiser ever!


Finally, 4-6 weeks after your event, you’ll receive a check in the mail with the total donation amount. It’s as easy as that!


You can hold 3 fundraisers per year (or every 4 months) at Noodles and Company, so feel free to make it a tradition!
