Of all the opportunities we get in life to do some good, perhaps the most compelling are those to help children. Fundraising for children’s education and charities can take many forms. Races and walk-a-thons, toy drives, and dinner-dances are all great choices to round up support for kids’ causes, but don’t usually include the kids themselves. When you host a fundraising event at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant, kids get to be kids for a cause.
How Can Chuck E. Cheese’s Help Me Raise Money?
When you host a fundraising event for more than 75 people at Chuck E. Cheese’s, the restaurant donates 15% of the proceeds directly to your school or non-profit organization benefitting children up to twelve years of age. Approved organizations include schools, scouting groups, kids’ charities, youth sports clubs, and religious organizations.
Chuck E. Cheese’s requests that event reservations are made for weeknights at least three weeks in advance. Chuck E. Cheese’s offers great support at the time of sign-up by providing online marketing tools, Evites, and use of printable logos to help make your event a success. The percentage of sales from all food, merchandise and game tokens will go to your organization ten business days after your fundraiser.
Why Should I Hold a Fundraiser with Chuck E. Cheese’s?
It’s no secret: kids love a trip to Chuck E. Cheese’s! With Chuck E. Cheese’s safe atmosphere, affordable fare, games and rides, it’s no wonder parents love it almost as much as their children do. Anytime your request for support for your cause includes an activity people enjoy doing anyway, it’s hard for them to say, “sorry, no.” You can feel confident that your participants are enjoying themselves while they support your charity. If you’re raising funds to benefit a school, teachers eat free at the event, and Chuck E. Cheese himself will pay a visit to the school on the day of the fundraiser! Finally, it makes sense that a benefit for a school or non-profit children’s charity should be held in a kid-friendly place. It doesn’t get more kid-friendly than Chuck E. Cheese’s.
