How Quickly Fundraising Works

Setting up your event takes less than 1 minute. All you’ll need to do is:


  1. Choose a Quickly location that’s close-by for your group and its supporters
  2. Select a date and time that’s good for your group and its supporters
  3. Fill in your group information and estimate how many people will RSVP
  4. Hit Submit. Pretty easy, right?



Put in your request at least 2 weeks before your desired event date. Then, within 7 days, the restaurant will respond to your request. All types of groups can fundraise, from college clubs to charities to PTAs and more!


Once your event is approved, it’s time to promote! Spread the word to all your supporters and send them to your event’s unique Meal Page, where they can RSVP and learn more about the event. Check out our tips and tricks to boost attendance here: How to Host a Successful Fundraiser.


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 bubble tea + a fun time with your supporters + funds for your group = the best fundraiser ever! Finally, within 4-6 weeks after your fundraiser, Quickly will send your organization a check for 15% of the sales from your group.


Get this: there’s no limit to the number of Quickly fundraising events you can host. That means there’s unlimited potential to how much your organization could earn!
