From Food to Funds: How to Set Up a TGI Fridays Fundraising Event

Organizing a TGI Fridays fundraising event is pretty straightforward. You can do it in one minute! Just follow the steps below:


  1. Choose a TGI Fridays near you
  2. Select a date and time that works for your group
  3. Complete some basic information about your organization
  4. Hit Submit. Pretty easy, right?



Get that request sent at least 2 weeks before your intended fundraising date so that the restaurant has time to respond to your request. All types of groups can fundraise, from college clubs to charities to PTAs and more!


Next, spread the word about your event to your group’s supporters, rallying RSVPs. GroupRaise’s Meal Page – a unique web page for your group’s event – makes things even easier by tallying RSVPs for you and even reminding your supporters to stop by on the day of the event. Use flyers, social media, and word of mouth to promote your event and the Meal Page – then simply work up your appetite! Check out our post – How to Host a Successful Restaurant Fundraiser – for more tips and tricks for setting up an unforgettable event.


During your event, it’s all smooth sailing. No need to gather volunteers for a hard day’s work washing cars or baking – all they need to do is enjoy some tasty food! When the lights go down on the day of your fundraiser, TGI Fridays will calculate your group’s total earnings, then send you a check within 4-6 weeks.


Get this: you can hold as many TGI Fridays fundraising events as you want. Go ahead and request your next one, if you like!
