Fundraising and Donations
Our Commitment to the Neighborhood.
Charitable Donation Process
Thank you for considering a Potbelly donation/fundraiser. We have a handy electronic submission for all donation requests. Please keep in mind that all requests for charitable donations or sponsorships must be submitted at least 45 days prior to the event. Click here to submit your donation or sponsorship request.
Looking for more than just a donation request? Potbelly offers additional opportunities for your organization to team up with us.
Host a fundraiser at your neighborhood Potbelly. This type of event is for bigger do-good organizations with 200+ people. By hosting an event at our sandwich shop, 25% of the sales gathered from the event are donated to your cause.
Have your neighborhood shop create a shake just you and your organization. This is perfect for sports teams, schools, and small organization with 200 people or less. For a Shake Fundraiser, we’ll create a special hand-dipped milkshake using one or a combination of our delicious ingredients. You will then name your shake and tell all your friends to come in and order it. Potbelly will donate $0.50 from every customized shake sold to your organization at the end of a given time frame.
Still not finding what you are looking for?
We recommend you still complete the donation/fundraiser request and mention your partnership idea.
*Very, Very Important
Hey everybody, our lawyer friends wanted us to let you know that your organization must be 501(c)3 tax exempt. We must have your 501(c)3 tax exempt form before we agree to partner with you. Not every organization is right for Potbelly. After a careful evaluation of your cause, we’ll decide if it’s in both our best interests to do a fundraiser together. Cool?!
