  • I understand that this is an application and does not guarantee that my fundraiser is approved. Upon approval, I agree to provide the required tax ID and W9 information as requested(if not already uploaded). I also agree to do all promotions off site and understand that handing out flyers on premise is in strict violation of this agreement and could result in a voided event. Applebee’s reserves the right to withhold any donation if a group distributes flyers at their event or on restaurant property. Only Applebee's receipts with the Dining To Donate event flyers attached will be included in our donation total when ringing in each transaction. 20% of eligible receipts collected (not including tax or gratuity) during your event will be donated to the organization.
