Workplace fundraising ideas
Some of these workplace fundraising ideas are St. Jude-specific, and others may be useful for any of your fundraising efforts for good causes. We hope these fundraising ideas for work can inspire your next office fundraising event and that you’ll consider giving to St. Jude through work.
Online fundraising ideas
Whether you’re in a hybrid, remote, or in-person work environment, fundraisers can be effective for team building and having fun. And there are plenty of online fundraising ideas to encourage friendly competition among co-workers.
Virtual trivia or bingo
Organize a virtual trivia or game hour for colleagues to compete online or through apps. Or ask colleagues to make a donation to St. Jude as an entry fee and then compete in a virtual bingo game together.
Your colleagues might appreciate an easy fundraising idea like crowdfunding. Create a fundraiser, set a goal and encourage people to contribute. Celebrate the end of your fundraiser with a meal at a local restaurant or a sweepstakes giveaway.
Use resources and items available to you and your coworkers, and host an online auction where part or all of the money made gets donated to St. Jude.
In-person and in-office fundraising ideas
In-person fundraising events can be powerful for team building, and there are plenty of options that might work for your next corporate giving effort.
Choose a fun theme, like wacky socks, pajamas, silly hats or sports jerseys. Or pick a time-period theme, and ask people to wear attire from a decade like the '90s or '70s. Request donations to participate and fundraise in style!
Donate to participate in a game hour and play drawing games, card games or board games. You could also organize a trivia night or bingo night!
Bake sale, bake off or cook off
Ask colleagues who love to bake or cook to take part in a competition-style fundraiser or sell their treats and donate the money made to St. Jude. Take dietary restrictions and relevant health laws into consideration.
Your support helps kids like Imani
Imani was in hospice after surgery for brain cancer. She was just 5 weeks old. Then came a phone conversation with an oncologist at St. Jude, who said, “I’ve treated this before, and some people have been cured.”
At St. Jude, Imani started chemotherapy. Slowly but surely, she began to thrive. By March, the tumor had shrunk enough for a long and complicated surgery that removed it entirely. After several more months of chemotherapy, Imani is out of treatment and back at home, growing bigger and stronger every day.
