Host a Donation Night Fundraiser at Ian’s!

Host a Donation Night Fundraiser at Ian’s!

One of Ian’s founding goals is to support and give back to our community. We’ve donated thousands of pizzas and Free Slice Cards, and sponsored hundreds of events all around Dane County. Join us in using pizza as a force of good for our community.

To further that goal, we host Ian’s Pizza ‘Dough-Nation’ Fundraisers in Madison. On certain dates at our Frances Street and Garver Green locations, we give local non-profits and student orgs a chance to raise some ‘dough’ for their respective group — all while everyone gets to enjoy fresh, local, and delicious pizza and salad from yours truly!

What’s a Dough-Nation Night?

An Ian’s donation night is an opportunity for Madison-area organizations to sponsor a charitable event hosted at Ian’s Pizza on Frances Street or in Garver Feed Mill in Madison.

Increase awareness of your cause

Dough-Nation Nights are an opportunity to fundraise and increase awareness of your organization’s cause and host an organized event at an Ian’s in Madison.

Collaborative event promotion

We work directly with your organization to design a 1) co-branded printed event flyer and 2) social media post that you can use to distribute to your member network. We also share your event post online.

Dough-Nation Night Process

Apply to host a Dough-Nation Night at least three weeks in advance. Earlier application is best to allow plenty of time for event promotion.  The more people you bring in, the greater the donation.

Ian’s supports event planning & promotion.

We’ll work directly with your organization to design a flyer to promote your ‘Dough-Nation’ night. Once the flyer is approved, your group will be able to print and circulate it to your contacts and peers prior to the event.

Attendees present event flyers.

Attendees must bring the flyers to your Dough-Nation Night event at the restaurant so we can properly track the sales and the number of people that came in for your event since Ian’s will also be open to the general public for your event. For these reasons, flyers are not allowed to be passed out in or around the restaurant during the event.

Potential Donation Earnings

Donations are based on percentage of sales from customers who present flyers at your Dough-Nation Night event:

The number of flyers presented during the ‘Dough-Nation’ Night will determine the percentage of event sales donated to your cause.

The amount of your donation is based on number of flyers presented at your event:

1-15 flyers = 10% of your flyer sales

16-30 flyers = 15% of your flyer sales

31+ flyers = 25% of your flyer sales

Distribution of donation check

Once the flyers and receipts are added up, we’ll notify you with the total amount and drop your check in the mail. Join us in eating pizza for good!
