Bring your team together, boost morale and raise funds for our heroes all at the same time.
Many organisations choose us as their charity partner, from local clubs and societies to large UK and regional companies.
You will have a dedicated account manager who will support you every step of the way, working with you to develop a fundraising plan and help you meet your corporate social responsibility needs and objectives. Most importantly you and your staff can have fun in the process.
To organise an office-based fundraising event, you need to define your cause and set a goal of how much you would like to raise for a given charity. You need to think about the logistics of an event in relation to your office depending on what event you choose. Once you’ve planned the event, you need to promote it to ensure colleagues get involved.
There are plenty of ways to get involved. Take a look at the ideas below for inspiration.
Interested? We’d love to work with you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Golf tournaments can be a great way to raise money for charity. Simply set a date, choose a location for your tournament and ask colleagues and your business networks to donate to enter a team. You can really stir up the competition by offering incentives like a hole-in-one prize, privileges for the top golfer or forfeits or fines for the losers.
You can find out more about golf fundraising ideas with our Fundraise at Your Golf Club blog.Register your fundraiser
Persuade your colleagues to have a dress-up day at work. Ask them to make a suggested donation of £2, with a prize for the best fancy dress. Whether you’re working in the office or from home, this is a fun way to feel connected and break up the week. After all, who doesn’t want to see their boss turning up in the office or popping up on screen in full costume!
If your team is back on-site, a work scavenger hunt is a great way to get people away from their desks or workstations and colleagues can compete individually or in teams. Ask everyone to donate to participate in the hunt, then distribute clues to help them find the items in the building, or even outside. This is a fun activity that’s easy to plan and, if you’re competing in teams, working together to solve clues can be a good way to boost teamwork.
Ever fancied doing an iconic challenge such as John O’Groats to Land’s End or the Great Wall of China? You can choose from the many organised challenges or why not create a local event of your own and get sponsored to do it?
Have a bit of fun with your friends and family, or work colleagues. You can create a sweepstake for almost anything - from a sports event to guessing the weight of the baby. Decide the entry price for all participants and how the entry money will be split between the winner and the charity and enjoy raising money for our heroes.Register your fundraiser
Ask everyone in your team to write down a promise – something they could do for someone else - such as baking a cake, washing a car or helping to put up some shelves. Auction off these promises to the highest bidder and donate the money to Help for Heroes.
Seek out those budding chefs amongst you by hosting a cook-off and have colleagues compete to raise the most money. The winner gets an extra cash donation towards their fundraiser from the organisation – as well as bragging rights.
If you'd like to chat through your fundraising plans, give our Supporter Care Team a call on 0300 303 9888 or email email@example.com.
A great way of getting people involved in office fundraising is matching employee donations. It’s also great if the event has an element of competition or can help people develop skills that are linked to their job role. And if all else fails, food will always get people involved!
If your office fundraising event is open to both staff and clients, you can use your social media channels to promote your event and invite people along. If the event is solely for staff, you can use it as an opportunity to take photos to share on your social media channels, showcasing your charitable activity and the spirit of fun within your business.
Depending on the type of fundraising event you’re organising, you can collect money in advance. However, it’s better to collect the money on the day to build up an engaging collection process. In the digital age, less and less people carry cash around, so it’s important to offer flexible ways of donating in the workplace.
For example, mobile payments and money collection apps don’t require anyone to have cash, so team members can easily transfer the correct amount with one simple action.
