  4. Hit Submit. Pretty easy, right?



It doesn’t matter whether you are a PTA, college club, charity, or church – any group can fundraise!


Get that request sent at least 2 weeks before your intended fundraising date so that the restaurant has time to respond to your request.


With a Smashburger fundraising event, you’ll spend the days leading up to your event spreading the word by posting on social media, reaching out to friends and family, and shouting from the rooftops until all your supporters have heard the best news ever: “Come eat hamburgers for a great cause!”
