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 complete the form at the bottom of the page 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 by 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 each Monday 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.
Pizza X reserves the right to decline an Xtend a Hand request.
How do I apply?
Please complete the form at the bottom of the page at least 1 month prior to the month being requested. The more notice given, the more likely you’ll get the month you prefer. The Pizza X team will respond as soon as possible.
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 Pam Thrash at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 812-339-2256 x. 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.
Most events fail because there is not enough weekly promotion during the event. Only posting once about the event at the start of the month has proven inadequate for a successful event, so try to remind your audience often!
