When you would like have something a little bit bigger in terms of your fundraiser, it is often wise to partner up with a big brand that’s available in the area. Today, we focus on some big name companies in Carolina.

We did the research and we have found these big name companies that are present in both Carolinas and they regularly act as sponsors for charitable causes and non-profit organizations. Here they are:



Most Americans will know this to be one of the best commercial restaurants to call the USA home. They are the home of crispy chicken skin and other affordable meals. Did you know that they regularly partner up with local charities wherever a branch is to be found?

Yup, they regularly give back to the community that supports them by helping various causes utilize their branch as a location for the fundraiser. Sometimes, they even provide the food!



One of Applebee’s known philosophies is to have a neighborhood responsibility for wherever they are found. They take on a lot of different causes from veterans, helping schools, and providing a venue for any organization that aims to raise funds for pertinent causes for the immediate surroundings of the Applebee’s branch.



I-Hop is more than just a place to have good breakfast. Regardless of the bad publicity that they’ve had because of their “rebranding”, I-Hop remains to be one of the best institutions that can sponsor a local event or fundraiser. They generally prioritize causes that have to do with young children and hospitals. If your cause is under those categories, they will be an ideal company to partner with.

Of course, there are numerous other organizations which provide grants to organizations that meet their qualifications. Have you tried contacting these big name institutions for your next fundraiser?


Thinking Small: Simple Fundraising Things Anyone Can Do

If you want to help out a particular person, organization, or cause, throwing or putting together a simple fundraising is always a smart choice. There are tons of simple activities that you can do to help pull funds together.

Yes, we know that the likes of GoFundMe are now around to help facilitate fund collection. The trouble is, there have been how many people who have used it for nefarious reasons. If you want something that’s a bit more corporeal, here are a few activities that you can do:

Selling Ballers

Baller IDs are one of the more common ways that you can pull together funds. They are often simple to order and easy to get a hold of. They are generally made of rubber and can be customized to reflect the name of the recipient of the funds or the hashtag or battle cry of the movement.

Baller Bands are great because they are pretty strong and can last for years.

Bake Sales


One of the easiest ways that you can pull together funds for a cause or a person would be to hold a bake sale. You can whip up a batch of cookies, brownies, or even cupcakes and sell them. You can even ask other people to join you so that you can pull in bigger numbers.

These are often a favorite of those who want to throw fundraisers because they are relatively easy to put together and you can even do sales online!



A charity car wash is one of the more classic methods that simple fundraisers are made of. All you need is a good bunch of friends, a sign, a parking lot, and you’re set! This is a constant favorite of everyday citizens who want to come together to help out a cause—especially a local one like for a school.
