Whether you’re new to fundraising or you’ve been doing it for years – we all need a little inspiration
Ask all staff to wear red in exchange for a donation. Have a red coffee morning or red themed lunch.
Host a red themed coffee morning and sell healthy treats like cups filled with yoghurt and strawberries/raspberries.
Have a Big Raffle for an annual leave day, a coveted parking spot, or a free lunch for a team. The more valuable the prize the more money you’ll raise!
Show a movie in the canteen or large boardroom and serve refreshments like popcorn.
Hold a table quiz in work and make the rounds interesting and varied; a music round; a picture round and general knowledge round.
Ask your colleagues to submit a baby photo and have a ‘guess who’ competition.
Create a Happy Hearts team. Each colleague can be responsible for a different aspect of the event from promoting the event to banking the funds raised.
Tell EVERYONE in your office about your Happy Heart event. Use all the channels of communication available – email, team meetings, social media, and posters in the canteen and elevators. Don’t forget to send out a reminder the week of the event as well!
The Irish Heart Corporate Team is here to support you. If you have any queries or if you need more fundraising materials, please contact us! Give us a call on 01 6685001 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send a thank you email after your event to the office thanking everyone for donating to your event and supporting Irish Heart.
Find out if your company has a matched giving programme. If they do they may be able to match what you raised!
