Pizza X has been committed to supporting our local community since 1982 and, as an extension of this effort, we have adopted a simple dine and donate program, called Xtend a Hand, to give local organizations a chance to raise much-needed funds.
- If your organization is interested in participating, please email Sydney Tilford at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 1 month prior to the month being requested. The more notice given, the more likely you’ll get the month you prefer.
- Once the dates have been confirmed internally, the organization must provide a logo. Pizza X will then provide a flyer template for the organization to distribute to their family, friends, and followers.
- The key to making this fundraising effort successful is a massive advertising effort by the participating organization. Therefore, it’s recommended to distribute promotional materials to everyone, and often!
- Order and enjoy Pizza X each Monday during the month of your event! Make sure to use the code word if ordering my phone or click the “Xtend a Hand” tab if ordering online.
Setting Yourself Up for Success
- Schedule as early as possible to give your organization ample time to promote.
- Promote using many different channels including word-of-mouth, social media, and e-mail blasts.
- Set up event reminders through e-mail and social media at least 48 hours before the event.
- Feel free to tag Pizza X on your Xtend a Hand promotional posts to help reach more people.
- Reach out to your organization’s friends/partners to help spread the word!
- Encourage staff and volunteers to share social media posts and other promotional materials with their family and friends.
The “Fine Print”
- Each organization may schedule 1 event during a calendar year.
- An event is considered every Monday during a calendar month.
- Pizza X will only host Xtend a Hand events every Monday of a calendar month.
- Pizza X will donate 20% of purchases (excluding tax, delivery fee, and tip) when the organization-specific code word is used during a phone order or the organization is chosen under the “Xtend a Hand” tab when placing an order online during the event.
- Xtend a Hand donations are good for both pick-up and delivery orders.
- The organization may spread the word by any means necessary, but may not stand outside of any Pizza X location to target incoming customers.
- Xtend a Hand events are valid at all 5 Pizza X locations.
- Pizza X reserves the right to decline an Xtend a Hand request.
- When will I receive my check?
- We will try to get your check out ASAP, but be sure to expect it within 2-3 weeks.
- Who should I contact with additional questions?
- Please contact Sydney Tilford at email@example.com or by calling 812-339-2256×14 with any Xtend a Hand questions.
- We didn’t reach our donation goal. Any tips for next time?
- Make sure to schedule early and exhaust all promotional avenues to make everyone is aware of the event.
