Reach Fundraising Goals for Your Nonprofit at City Café

Small businesses help to form the heart of local communities. Their focus on supporting the people they serve daily usually extends beyond customer service and into philanthropy, as small businesses are great supporters of non-profits and charities, big and small.

Azusa’s new City Café opened on May 4th, 2015 and is using their classic American fare to support local community businesses. Nonprofits and charities have the ability to schedule events at City Café, and then make 10 percent off the event cost to put toward their organization.

“The give back events run from three o’clock to nine o’clock at night. And during that time, it’s the sales that we look at, less alcohol taxes and gratuity,” says Phil Diegelman of City Café. “Whatever the food sales are from that time period, that’s where we take the 10 percent off.”

A variety of local organizations like the Azusa Softball Little League have already participated and benefited from the opportunity.

“We just did [a give back event] here at City Café for a local church,” says Diegelman. “And we’re doing another one with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. It’s coming up on July 29th.”

Even better is that City Café doesn’t require an extensive verification process. Simply go to their website and fill out the online form to start planning an event. Not only is it a great way to gather local community members around tasty meals, it’s also an easy way for local charities to quickly raise some cash.

After the team at City Café sets up a designated time for the event, they have their graphic designer create a flyer and send out blasts through email and Facebook. A portion of their take-out orders during the event also goes to your organization.

To set up an event at City Café, go online at or call (626) 633-0269 and ask for Phil during normal business hours.
