At ChildFund Australia, we are incredibly grateful for the corporate support we receive and for the passionate employees who get their workplaces involved. We understand that every business wants to help in a different way and there are many ways to help children in need. Supporting charities is a wonderful way to motivate employees, demonstrate corporate social responsibility and build strong relationships among staff.
How can your workplace support vulnerable children?
Fundraising is a real team-building activity - from the ideas generation phase to telling everyone about your achievements. Activities can be as simple as a morning tea, as creative as a talent quest or as energetic as having a team enter a fun run. Everyone can get involved in their own way.
If you’re new to the world of fundraising, click here to read through our Fundraisers Getting Started Kit for ideas and tips. If you already know what you’re doing, view our Fundraisers Tool Kit for more details.
Many employers will match the donations of their employees. We encourage all employees to approach their Human Resources team to ask if this is something their organisation offers. Your organisation could match your regular donations, such as your child sponsorship or Project Humanity contributions, or even one-off donations such as those made to our appeals or community fundraising events like fun run.
It’s certainly worth asking!
Consumers appreciate businesses that actively support good causes. Why not make your support known to your customers and run a special promotion to donate a portion of sales or profits to ChildFund Australia?
Promotions headlines can be anything like: ‘We’ll donate $0.50 for every $5 you spend’ or ‘Upgrade your purchase to...... and we’ll donate $10’.
Not only are these promotions a great reason for your customers to choose your business but they also provide great stories for your newsletters especially if you set a goal.
ChildFund Australia is able to accept regular donations via payroll giving. If your organisation has the facility to offer payroll giving and you would like to take advantage of this service, please contact us today for details.
