  • Organise a committee - get a group of passionate employees together to help come up with fundraising ideas, execute them and help encourage others to participate.
  • Support a cause that is dear to employees’ hearts - find out about your employee’s interests and passions. Think about how you can work with a particular cause or non-profit organisation all year round
  • Decide and be clear about how you will raise money. Decide on the fund-raising mechanism e.g. sale of tickets, pledges, entry fees, sale of merchandise. Then decide on the amount to be donated e.g. 100% of gross or net proceeds
