(ERIE, Colo.) — Force4Good today announced the launch of its online platform for community fundraising.
“Restaurants are the heart of every community, and communities are what make this nation strong,” said Steven Cook, cofounder, Force4Good. “Our goal is to help QSRs bolster their community ties and become positive forces for good by helping the organizations that make communities great.”
Force4Good encourages restaurants to develop fundraising partnerships with small organizations, thereby maximizing the impact.
“Fundraisers build strong relationships between customers and operators, inspire staff, and create an atmosphere of excitement and positivity at a time when many properties are trying to get customers back in dining rooms,” said Cook. “It’s amazing how much a fundraiser can bring a community together.”
Fundraisers are becoming increasingly popular among restaurants – particularly large chain restaurants – as a means of increasing sales, attracting new customers, and doing good for their local communities.
Force4Good fundraisers average $650 in sales, $137 in donations, and 20 new restaurant customers, all with minimal effort on the part of the property. They’re also incredibly easy to manage.
The online platform provides the optimal timing to hold the event, manages turnout, determines sales and donation levels, and streamlines correspondence with the non-profit group. Comprehensive reporting and tax results are immediately available after an event has concluded. The platform is customizable to ensure a fully-branded experience.
Force4Good was conceived by the team that helped create Chipotle’s in-house fundraising platform. The company also works with MOD Pizza, Roti, Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, and QDOBA.
Force4Good believes in lifting local communities with a goal to facilitate one million fundraisers by 2025 for nonprofits, school groups and charitable causes. Force4Good donates 1% of its own revenue to nonprofits. More at force4good.com.
