Lunch with an Executive:
Employees make a donation and are entered into a draw for a lunch with a top executive as a professional development opportunity.
Have inter-departmental fundraising challenges such as a sports day (bowling, table-tennis, baseball, darts, etc.) – reward the winning team with a free lunch or half day of work on a Friday.
Start a Monthly Giving Campaign:
Encourage your colleagues to support your fundraiser by placing a container in a central location in your office, so that people can drop spare change in it. You an also have penalties for dirty cups left in the coffee room, leaving the printer cover open, not turning off office light when they leave, etc. Make it fun, it helps with team building as well.
Ask employees to bring a donation to participate in the day – like jeans day on Fridays in a more formal office.
Give It Up:
Donate the money you would have spent on coffee and treats in one week to iWOF.
Host a pancake breakfast for the office, or better, the whole floor of your building. Invite them to make a donation to enjoy the meal with each other.
Come up with creative ideas for fun and a small fee that will make a difference in a third world country.
