With more teams working remotely, it’s harder for businesses to ensure that their employees are happy, fulfilled and have a sense of belonging at work. On top of that, more people are now looking at business’ fundraising and charity commitments when choosing an employer as they want to work for a business that’s aligned with their personal values and interests.
Fundraising is therefore a really valuable engagement tool, because not only are there many fun and inclusive ways for your employees to participate regardless of where they’re working, it encourages teamwork and gives employees the opportunity to make an impact which boosts morale.
A great way of getting people involved in office fundraising is matching employee donations. It’s also great if the event has an element of competition or can help people develop skills that are linked to their job role. And if all else fails, food will always get people involved!
If your office fundraising event is open to both staff and clients, you can use your social media channels to promote your event and invite people along. If the event is solely for staff, you can use it as an opportunity to take photos to share on your social media channels, showcasing your charitable activity and the spirit of fun within your business.
Depending on the type of fundraising event you’re organising, you can collect money in advance. However, it’s better to collect the money on the day to build up an engaging collection process. In the digital age, less and less people carry cash around, so it’s important to offer flexible ways of donating in the workplace.
For example, if you set up a JustGiving fundraiser page you’ll be able to create QR codes to go on poster in your office so your employees can give online, or we can set up a text to donate just for your event. For help and support on how to do this please contact email@example.com.
When it comes to fundraising it’s always better to do it in groups as together we are stronger. Why not organise a community event to help raise money and awareness for Cyfannol. We’ll support you along the way with leaflets for your event and maybe a member of staff attend. Here are some suggestions for events you might host:
Come together to host an International Women’s Day event on March 8th to celebrate all the amazing women in the community, we had a fundraiser host a coffee morning to support us in 2022.
On November 25th each year, people work to put an end to male violence against women and girls. Why not ask one of our staff to speak at a White Ribbon Day event?
Cyfannol host a Christmas Jumper day on the 9th of December each year, why not join in the fun and put on your festive knits and create some activities to celebrate Christmas together.
On International Women’s Day, Safran Seats hosted a fundraiser for Cyfannol and invited us to attend to raise awareness about our cause. On the day, they held a sponsored leg wax and a dress down event, raising more than £250. Since then, our awareness-raiser has participated in two Safran Seats wellness events in Newport and Cwmbran.
Choose Cyfannol as your charity of the year with corporate partnership.
Find out more about the different partnership opportunities we offer, why your support matters, and how you can support us to do whatever it takes to help people fleeing from domestic abuse and sexual violence.
Why partner with us?
Our corporate partnerships have helped us to support those effected by domestic abuse and sexual violence, no matter what their situation.
keep our girls group going to support girls aged 11-15 who have previously lived in a home where there was an unhealthy relationship between adults.
keep our Horizon safe space open for women who are at risk of, or experiencing, sexual exploitation.
provide peer support groups which brings people together with shared experiences to support each other.
“Cyfannol is an important charity for us because we passionately believe that no one should feel unsafe at home or in the workplace. Anyone could find themselves in a situation where they need help and services like Cyfannol are often the first step to a new destination.”
“We are delighted to have formed partnerships with local support services, including Cyfannol, who have a critical role to play in supporting the communities of Monmouthshire. By supporting Cyfannol Women’s Aid through our Community Pots of Gold project, we can ensure that there is support in place to help people within our communities create a brighter future.”
“I’ve always felt that help should start at home. But home isn’t always the safe place, our safety net, that it should be. Which is why the work that Cyfannol does is so vital.”
