How it works: During a Fundraising Night, Panera will donate a percentage of pretax food and beverage sales on a specified evening generated by supporters who present a flyer at the time of purchase. Events are held Monday through Thursday between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Groups can earn 10 percent to 20 percent of sales, depending on the number of flyers that are brought in. Note: If fewer than 20 flyers are brought back, the group will get no donation.
To request an event, fill out an online form including the date, time, and location. The event can be held at any of the bakery-cafes listed on the reservation form.
