Create some fun and healthy competition in your workplace by challenging your co-workers to a fundraising challenge. Create teams, pick your activities and don’t forget to inquire about your company’s gift match program.
Hint: Your co-workers will like you even more if you plan events outside of the office environment. Everyone always loved field trips in school… why not plan a half-day adventure that will get everyone away from their desk.Create a personal fundraising event now

Add some swing to your day or climb to new heights by organizing a mini-golf or rock-climbing afternoon. Create teams and compete to get the lowest score or collectively climb the rock-wall the fastest. Let your inner-child shine and plan an out-of-office activity.
Dress Down Days
Jeans on Friday are great, but mid-week dress down days are even better. Donate funds to dress down midweek. Host monthly mid-week dress down days and collect funds throughout the year.
Take turns in the office hosting bake sales. Cookies, cupcakes, cake… you can’t go wrong with a little sugar pick-me-up.
Matching gifts can sometimes double or even triple your donation. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Reach out to your company’s Human Resources department to find out more.
