Need Some fundraising ideas for your friends, school, workplace or church? Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Have a bake sale/pot luck lunch
Employees bake/bring cakes, lunch and drinks in and everyone who eats makes a donation
- Have a Dress Down Day
Pick a day and allow everyone who makes a donation to dress casually.
- Payroll deduction sign-up
Provide employees with the opportunity to complete a one-time payroll deduction as a donation. The company could encourage donations by agreeing to match the donations dollar for dollar.
- Have a raffle
Raffle off a prime location parking spot or the boss’ spot; whoever wins can park there for a week, month, year etc.
b. Raffle a nice prize i.e. Bottle of wine, iPad, iPhone, jewelry, grocery store gift card, gas or spa certificate.
- Sell tickets to win a lunch and/or golf with the boss
Lunch will be out of the office and the boss pays!
- Tips for waiters and waitresses
Executives become the servers in the employee dining room, all the tips go to charity!
- Team building competitions between senior management
Make donations to watch senior management compete against each other in a bike race, hula hoop contest, pie in the face, dunk tank etc.
- Executive car wash
Ask senior management to hold a car wash. Employees pay to watch as their bosses wash their cars. All payments go to charity!
- Ugly tie or sweater contest
Donate money to vote on which employee has the worse tie and/or sweater (can also double as a dress down day leading up to Christmas).
