We’ve put together some ideas for how your workplace can get together and raise money for The Forgotten Women.....

Spare Change Bucket

This idea will raise money throughout the year, with minimal effort. Contact the charity you’re fundraising for and ask them for some branded collection tins. Place the tins/buckets in areas of your workplace that people walk past a lot, like the kitchen, reception and meeting rooms.

 

Swear Jar/Buzzword Jar

Set up a jar in the workplace and any time somebody curses/uses the buzzword, they need to make a donation.

Ugly Shirt/Hat Day

Everyone donates to be able to wear their ugliest shirt/hat or similar item of clothing to work on a given day.  Offer a prize for the ugliest item. 

 

Casual Dress Day

Everyone donates to be able to wear casual clothes at work on a given day.

 

Coffee Free Day/Week/Month 

Everyone donates the cost of their daily coffee for given period. 

 

Matched Giving

Challenge your bosses, another team, a client or someone similar to match the money you and your team raise for a charity. 

 

Quiz/Trivia 

Hold a quiz/trivia event with entry frees going to your charity of choice.   

 

Guess The Baby

Ask everyone to provide a baby photo of themselves with staff competing to match the adult to the baby photo.  Small donation to participate and a prize for the winner. 

 

Guess The Lollies

Fill a jar with lollies and ask your colleagues to guess how many lollies are in the jar. Charge a small fee to enter and give the jar of lollies to whoever guesses the closest number.

Charity Birthdays
