It’s time to round up your colleagues, get creative and become Heroes for Hope!
There are many great reasons to get your workplace involved in fundraising for the Salvos. As one of Australia’s most visible charities providing care to more than 1 million struggling Australians each year, the Salvos relies on the generous support of the community to keep our programs running.
Becoming a Hero for Hope is your chance to help make a difference in the lives of people struggling to get by. We work in areas of greatest need and our programs support people experiencing homelessness, family violence, financial stress, unemployment and addiction.
Every dollar your workplace raises goes a long way to give hope where it’s needed most.
Stuck for fundraising ideas? There are plenty of fun and exciting ways that your workplace can raise money for the Salvos. Remember, planning is the key to success! Below are a few ideas to get you started:
HAVE A RED DAY
It’s time to add some colour to the next casual Friday in the office. Encourage everyone in the office to wear something red and ask for a donation. Remember to send out regular reminders before your event day and organise a donation box.
HOLD A MORNING OR AFTERNOON TEA
Have your work mates bring a plate of goodies and charge hungry colleagues for each item. Up the ante and turn it into a competition – whichever dish raises the most funds wins!
INTER-DEPARTMENTAL SPORTS MATCHES
Is there a fierce rivalry between the finance and marketing departments? It’s time to settle the score and organise a knock out competition to see which department reigns supreme in netball, soccer, footy etc. Get each participant to donate an hour’s pay to play.
Ask your boss to support your fundraising efforts by matching the funds you raise.
