Other Fun Ideas
Consider holding a simple collection or organizing a competition to see which department can raise the most money. Some businesses fundraise for the Foundation by allowing employees to wear jeans on a particular day of the year in exchange for a $5 donation. Others donate a percentage of sales revenue over a specific period of time. Work with your colleagues to come up with an idea and discover that giving back can be fun, rewarding and, in the case of “Jeans Day,” comfortable too!
