Minsky’s 4-for-40 Fundraiser culminated with the official donation check presentations to each of our four, well-deserved not-for-profits: KC Pet Project, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Turn the Page KC, and the Alex Smith Foundation! Thanks to the generosity of our amazing Minsky’s customers, loyal supporters of each organization, KMBC 9 News and 9 Can Help for their assistance with media and publicity, and a very charitable donation from Reinhart Foods, Minsky’s was able to raise almost $30,000 in donations for the 4-for-40 campaign!
To start off the fundraising efforts, Minsky’s donated $1000 to each of the four not-for-profits at the Minsky’s 40th Anniversary Celebration and 4-for-40 Kick Off Party – and just like that, the 4-for-40 fundraiser was in full swing!
Throughout the month of May, Minsky’s donated 15% of in-store dining tickets and 15% of online ordering tickets to the individual customer’s charity of choice when they used a special coupon or online ordering code for their chosen organization. As a “thank you” for participating, Minsky’s rewarded the customers with 5% off their entire order, in addition to the 15% donation to their not-for-profit!
To add an extra incentive for the not-for-profits to promote their organization during the 4-for-40 campaign, Minsky’s announced that the charity to receive the most guest donations during the 4-for-40 program period would receive equal matching funds from Minsky’s – or, double the donation! Reinhart Foods, one of Minsky’s food suppliers, made a very generous donation that was a significant addition to the “4 for 40” total.
The results have been tallied, and the checks have been signed and presented to our fantastic “4 for 40” not for profits at 51st and Main!
KC Pet Project Total Donation: $14,519.44
Big Brothers Big Sisters Total Donation: $5,546.96

Minsky’s would like to thank everyone who helped make our 4-for-40 fundraising event a success!
