Rules and Application
STEEL CITY PIZZA CO. FUNDRAISING APPLICATION
Welcome! You’re on your way to raising funds for your cause through a Steel City Pizza Co. fundraiser. Steel City Pizza Co. fundraisers are in-restaurant, to go, and online, with 20% of sales donated directly to your cause (subject to meeting the minimum fundraiser sales as described below).
We partner with many different kinds of organizations for fundraisers. Here are some of our favorites:
K–12 Schools (i.e. PTAs/PTOs, STEM Clubs, school clubs)
University Groups (Intramural Sports, Greek Life, College Radio)
Youth Sports Teams (Little League, Soccer, etc.)
Libraries and Community Centers
Non-Profits (Veterans, Animal Shelters, United Way)
Food and Sustainable Agriculture Groups (Future Farmers, 4-H)
If your request falls into one of these categories (or one similar) and meets the following guidelines, please submit an application through the link below. Due to the large number of requests we receive, we cannot honor all of them. If your request is approved, we will contact you soon.
We need at least three weeks’ notice in order to schedule your event. This is to give our restaurants time to prepare and you time to promote your fundraiser! We will also supply you with a flier to print and promote your event.
REQUIREMENTS TO QUALIFY FOR THE DONATION OF FUNDRAISER PROCEEDS
In order for purchases to count towards your fundraiser, your supporters must either a) verbally tell our cashier of their participation, b) show a physical fundraiser flyer, c) show a digital flyer on a smartphone or other mobile device, or d) use your fundraiser’s online ordering code to place an order for pickup through the Steel City Pizza Co. app or website. A $150 minimum event sales amount is required to be eligible to receive any donation of event sales.
One last thing, let’s make sure we’re a good fit for a partnership! Backpacking in Europe is awesome, but doesn’t fit our criteria for a fundraiser. Before submitting an application, please check the list below to make sure you aren’t fundraising for any of the following causes:
Individual causes (scholarships, stipends, personal medical expenses)
For-profit ventures (your startups, businesses, uncle’s ponzi scheme)
Religious groups for religious purposes (youth groups or mission trips)
Lobbying or political groups (we just want to roll burritos)
Individual study, research or travel grants (summer jam band tours or that backpacking trip we mentioned)
Anything else we just decide isn’t a fit (believe us, we’ve seen it all)
Steel City Pizza Co. will not support organizations that discriminate against a person or a group on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation or religious belief.
FOUR STEPS TO SUCCESS
Set a goal for how much you are looking to fundraise for the event.
Utilize the customized Fundraising Flyer you receive when your event is approved to promote the event to the group & the surrounding community! Print copies to send home to parents, post on Facebook & Instagram, share details at meetings & email out to all group connections. The more people see it, the more likely they are to attend the event!
3. MAKE IT EASY
Remind your supporters of the various ways they can give back to your organization through Steel City Pizza Co.!
4. FOLLOW UP
It’s important that you are reminding people each day leading up to the event. Ask when they will be going? Have they shared the flyer? Can you count on their support?Click Here to Apply
