Arlington Heights, Ill. September 22, 2011—School districts dealing with shrinking budgets for academics, athletics and extracurricular activities have turned to fundraising to keep popular programs afloat. Restaurant.com announces fundraising solutions designed to help schools raise money quickly and easily through sales of Restaurant.com Gift Cards.   

“Restaurant.com fundraising helps schools sell high value gift cards at a very low cost,” said Senior Vice President Howie Schnuer, Incentive & Loyalty Solutions at Restaurant.com. “We’re proud to offer this solution when funding for our children’s programs is becoming more challenging every day. Many of the parents here at Restaurant.com use our fundraising programs and have seen great results.”    

Organizations participating in Restaurant.com fundraising can sell a $50 Restaurant.com Gift Card for $20 and keep up to $10 from each gift card sold. The sale allows supporters to help local organizations while saving money on dining out at more than 18,000 restaurants nationwide. The gift card value can be redeemed in three easy steps online at Restaurant.com Fundraising. The single gift card streamlines the fundraising process by minimizing the amount of time needed for organizations to fulfill and distribute the product to supporters.

"Fundraising with Restaurant.com Gift Cards appealed to the broader community and helped us earn $2,400 in less than three weeks with only 20 cheerleaders helping in their spare time,” said Rebecca Miller of JETS Cheerleading, Georgetown, Texas. “The result speaks for itself! We’ll be using Restaurant.com Gift Cards again for future fundraising programs."

Restaurant.com Fundraising offers its fundraising solutions primarily through well-established fundraising partners, including online and social media options.  Many of the company’s partners do not require up-front costs from participating organizations prior to the fundraising campaign
