Camp Kee Tov Dine Out Event at Little Star Pizza, Albany, CA

Supercharge your Giveback and Community Impact with an Event!

Giveback Events provide the opportunity to not only raise a significant amount of funds and sales, but they also bring the community together into one space for a night of fun and socializing. With an easy setup, Events have the potential to make a huge difference for any business or community organization.

How Giveback Events Work

Keep an eye out for upcoming giveback events in your area. When you attend an event, simply notify the merchant that you are participating and give them the email or phone number associated with your BigPie account. Typically there will be cards provided for you to fill out with the appropriate information.

Our most common events are currently Dine Outs: patrons come to a restaurant during a specific time range. In exchange, the restaurant pledges to donate a percentage of each supporting patron’s purchase to the nonprofit or school who set up the event.

Hosting an event is simple! We’ll partner you up with a local nonprofit or school, and they’ll fill your store in exchange for a donation of a percentage of the sales they bring in for you. Once you’ve agreed to host the event, sit back and relax – we’ll handle the publicity, planning, and accounting for you.

On the day of the event, just make sure that your staff knows it’s happening – our events tend to draw in a crowd. We’ll give you small cards to keep track of who attended the event and how much they spent. Simply hand out one of these cards with each receipt and ask your patrons to fill them out. Then drop the cards in the box we provide. We’ll collect the box after the event has ended and send you an invoice for your donation.

Earning giveback through events is simple! Once you have a free BigPie account, tell us the dates and times that you are available to have an event with your members by emailing us at [email protected]. If you have a preferred merchant you’d like to work with, let us know that too. We’ll contact the merchant and set up the event for you. If you’d like, we can also help out with the creation of any marketing materials you might need including email blurbs, flyers, photos, and logos.

For your members: Tell them to come shop with your host merchant during the event time. Members should create a free BigPie account before coming if possible (though they can create it after the fact too). After the event is over and we have invoiced the merchant, we will send you a check with the giveback you have earned! All of your previous
event information will then be available in your BigPie account.

Some Merchants, such as realtors and law firms, can’t host a Giveback Event for a variety of reasons. But that doesn’t mean they can’t participate!

In addition to hosting Giveback Events, Merchants can sponsor outside Events through our MerchantMatch program in exchange for a space on all publicity materials surrounding the Event. Each MerchantMatch raises the Event’s giveback by 100%!
