From Food to Funds: How to Set Up a Wendy’s Fundraising Event

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


  1. Choose a Wendy’s location near you
  2. Select a date and time that’s convenient for your group
  3. Provide your group’s information
  4. Hit Submit. Pretty easy, right?



Any group can fundraise: college clubs, churches, school PTAs, you name it!


Make sure to submit your request at least 2 weeks before your event date. Then, Wendy’s has 7 days to respond to your request.


Once the restaurant confirms your event, it’s time to start promoting! Log into your social media accounts and notify your friends, family, and supporters about your Wendy’s fundraising event. Spread your event’s GroupRaise Meal Page, so supporters can RSVP and get a reminder on the day of the fundraiser. The more people that attend, the more you’ll raise for your organization!

Finally, the restaurant will send you a check with the total donation amount 4-6 weeks after your event.


What’s more, there’s no limit to the amount of fundraisers you can host with Wendy’s – so go all out if you want!

Why is Wendy’s right for me?

Wendy’s is the perfect place for a fundraiser. First of all, you’ll be in hamburger heaven. If you haven’t tried their barbecue cheeseburgers, you’re in for a treat! Not digging cheeseburgers? No problem! Wendy’s also offers delicious baked potatoes.


What’s more, your supporters will enjoy choosing from a wide range of menu possibilities. Wendy’s happily includes menu items for our vegetarian friends. There are options for gluten-sensitive diners too! To learn more, view the menu on the Wendy’s website.


Plus, with an average menu price of $7, Wendy’s is a great budget-friendly fundraising option.

The process of organizing and advertising is sure to be a total breeze. It’ll take hardly any effort (aside from, “Hey, Wendy’s for dinner?”) to get your group’s community in line for your fundraiser. Plus, walking away with 20% of your organization’s total sales will be even more delicious than your very first bite!
