Give at Work
Giving to Generations of Indian Valley through your workplace is easy – and it can be a lot of fun, too! You can designate Generations through your workplace’s United Way campaign or host a fundraising event.
Throw a PhilanthroParty
Organize a fundraising event at your office to benefit Generations of Indian Valley. It’s a great way to bond with your coworkers and show your workplace’s commitment to building a stronger community.
Pick an Event
The sky’s the limit with ways to fundraise at work. Here are a few suggestions – but don’t be afraid to get creative and do whatever works best with your office culture.
Find a favorite watering hole that will donate a portion of that night’s food and drink purchases to GIV. Host a happy hour with a suggested “cover charge”.
Challenge each other to sing particular songs for a donation. The harder the song, the higher the charge!
Blue Jean Fridays
Get the ok from your management team to wear jeans in exchange for a donation. You can do it by the day, week or month!
When you’re ready to move forward, let us know what you’re up to. Why not email Amy Stover at firstname.lastname@example.org or Doug Eschbach at email@example.com.
Find Out if Your Company or Organization Will Match Funds
Many workplaces will support their employees’ community investment by matching part or all of the money raised during a fundraiser. Check with your human resources or finance department to find out how to bolster your PhilanthroParty with a matching gift from your organization.
Pick a Date, Set a Goal and Spread the Word
Pick an event date and set a goal for the amount you want to raise. Give yourself several weeks to let everyone know what’s happening. This suggested timetable for marketing your event at work will help you stay organized!
You can set up your own specialized fundraising page for your event using Razoo, GIV’s preferred online fundraising tool.
Customize your fundraising page with company logos, videos, and links to Facebook.
