Texas Roadhouse Dine to Donate Fundraiser
With a dine to donate fundraiser, you and your supporters dine in or order take-out from your favorite Texas Roadhouse location. Then, they donate 10-15% of the total sales from your event back to your cause!
Placing an event request takes less than one minute on GroupRaise and works like this:
- Select a location near you
- Choose a date and time
- Press submit!
Once you’ve chosen a desired location, date, and time that works for your organization, the next step is to spread the word. Tell any and all group members, friends, family, coworkers, and potential supporters that would be interested in indulging in some steak for a good cause.
On the day of your Texas Roadhouse Fundraiser, supporters order from your chosen location during the given time frame and tell their server that they are a part of the fundraiser. It’s that simple!
After the fundraiser, Texas Roadhouse will donate 10-15% of the total sales from your event back to your chosen cause within four to six weeks. With average meal prices at $16, this can be an easy way to earn great money for your cause!
The fundraising requests must be made at least two weeks before the desired fundraising date, in order for the restaurant to have enough time to prepare for the event, as well as for you to have enough time to spread the word to as many supporters as possible.
The Texas Roadhouse dine to donate fundraiser is one of the best fundraising ideas for groups. What better reason is there to enjoy a delicious meal of hand-cut steaks, juicy ribs, and scrumptious sides than raising money for a good cause?
Texas Roadhouse Donation Requests
Texas Roadhouse places a high value on giving back to the community. To request a donation–whether in dollars, gift cards, or food–write to the Managing Partner of your local Texas Roadhouse. If you don’t have the local contact, you can start by sending a message through their general contact page.
Texas Roadhouse asks that you submit the request on your organization’s official letterhead and include the following information:
- The charitable organization’s full name
- Phone and fax numbers
- The donation request
- Date the donation is needed
- Purpose of use
Donation requests must be made at least 30 days before when the donation is needed. Texas Roadhouse unfortunately cannot say “yes” to every request that is made, and decisions are made by the individual location. Reach out to a Texas Roadhouse near you to see if your cause is eligible for donation!
Gift Cards, Bread Rolls, & Peanuts Fundraisers
We all know the fluffy, soft rolls from Texas Roadhouse are to die for. And who could forget the classic crunchy peanuts? Well, now you can harness the power of both through order-taker fundraisers.
Members of your group can sell Texas Roadhouse gift cards, rolls, and peanuts, with a percentage of sales going back to your cause.
Gift cards come in various amounts from $5 to $100. Bread rolls are sold by the dozen and come frozen, with baking instructions and honey cinnamon butter. Peanuts come in pre-packaged bags for easy distribution.
To get started with an order-taker fundraiser, contact the Managing Partner of your closest Texas Roadhouse.
