Fundraising in the workplace can be easy.

We have compiled successful workplace fundraising ideas from existing supporters to help you get started. You can tailor these ideas to your workplace, build upon them or even come up with your own.

Ways to Fundraise

Your efforts are a fun way to engage your team while supporting families with a serious illness.

Office Theme Parties

Organize a Halloween costume party, a Winter Holiday party, Valentine’s party or an End of Summer social. The themes are endless and offer a fun and exciting way for the whole office to participate and socialize.

Draw or Silent Auction

Collect prizes for your draw or auction, such as gift certificates, sports tickets or invite your colleagues to donate their any skills (eg. photography, yoga instruction). Other fun prizes could include lunch with your president, or a parking space for a year. Suggest a minimum donation for draw ticket and auction items.

Dress Down Fridays

Talk to your Human Resources department about designating Fridays as casual day in exchange for donations.
