Fundraising Events

Are you looking for a simple way to raise money for your school or organization? Request to host a Fundraiser Event at your local bakery-café. Fundraisers at Panera are a great way to combine great food, fun, and a good cause! Forget door-to-door sales or scrubbing bumpers. All you have to do is eat dinner and a portion of the sale will be donated to your school or organization.


We do all the hard work, you bring the people. This is a great way for clubs and sports teams raise money without doing door to door sales. It is also great for smaller organizations that want to fundraise but do not want to organize an independent event. There are four easy steps to hosting a Fundraiser Event at your local bakery-café:

  1. Fill out a fundraiser application at Please note we do not accept fundraisers Friday-Sunday.​​​

  2. Distribute your event's unique flyer; Event attendees will need to show the flyer upon ordering. You can hand out hard copies, send it in emails, share it on your Facebook page, and any other method you can think of. This needs to be done before the event since you are not allowed to hand out flyers at the cafe or in the parking lot during your fundraiser.

  3. Spend at least $150 total between all your guests at your local bakery-café between 4pm and 8pm.

  4. Get a check for 25% of the sales to your guests.
