Got Team

Here are some tips to help you with your fundraising:

  •   Start asking for donations early.
  •  Set a goal and tell people what it is. Let everyone know that you’re training for the Komen South Florida Race for the Cure and need their donations to help find the cures for breast cancer.
  • Research your company’s matching gift program.  You could double your money raised!
  •   Learn about Komen South Florida and your dollars at work.
  • Remember to thank every individual who helps you reach your goal. Let them know you appreciate them and that they’re helping make a difference.
  • Provide updates - let people know how much you’ve raised and how close you are to reaching your goal.

 

Fundraising Ideas

  • Organize a “dress down day” at the office and ask everyone who participates to donate a predetermined amount.
  • Have a 50-50 raffle – half of the cost of each ticket goes into the pot for the winner, the other half goes to your fundraising efforts for the Komen South Florida Race for the Cure.
  • Get Together – invite your friends and family over for a barbecue and collect donations!
  • Are you having a family reunion? This is a perfect time to organize a family team or collect donations to help run breast cancer out of town.
  • Host a volleyball or basketball tournament - set up a challenge between areas of business. Ask for a donation as an entry fee.
  • Get your kids involved! Have a bake sale, set up a lemonade stand, have a garage sale – use your imagination.
  • Restaurant Partnership/Benefit Night – reach out to restaurants to see if they would host a night where proceeds from that night’s sales go to your team!And, encourage employees, team members, their friends, and families to go to the restaurant that night. You can offer to generate a flyer to promote patrons coming to their establishment to help increase their business, and thus your percentage.
  • High Five s at Staff Me e tings – For the we e ks le ading up to the race, coworkers are encouraged to give out “High Fives” – a $5 donation on behalf of another coworkers good work or accomplishment.
  • Employee Incentives – Rewarding the overall top fundraiser with an extra vacation day.
  • Fundraising Committee – Appoint a Corporate Committee responsible for promoting the Race for the Cure, your team specifically, and fundraising efforts in their branch of the company.
  • Live Auction – Ask some local businesses to donate items or gift certificates and hold an auction with an energetic auctioneer (maybe a top executive in the company) on payday at work. Some fun business raffles include: Trade jobs with CEO for the day, Dinner at boss’ home, Free lunch with the boss
  •  Lunch and Learn – Hold a seminar with employees, a member of the Komen South Florida staff could come speak, maybe a Survivor within your company, and possibly a Grantee or 2 to come speak; collect donations here!
  • Photo Contest – Hold a “stumper” photo contest! Ask employees to bring a baby or childhood photo of themselves that they believe no one can identify. Ask for a donation to make a guess. Give winners a contributed prize!
