Incentives


Offering prizes and other incentives for giving almost always helps increase your campaign. Poll a few coworkers to get some ideas of what you could offer. Often the best prizes come from within your own workplace like extra PTO hours, VIP parking, a week at the boss’ vacation home or company seats to a Seahawks game.

Emerging Leaders


If you have employees in their 20s or 30s who are interested in volunteering, networking and giving back all year long, they should join Emerging Leaders! Emerging Leaders know it takes time and money to truly make a difference, which is why they’re joining together to make an even bigger impact. Or even better, point them toward Emerging Leaders 365: With just $1/day the impact they make through collective giving will be incredible. Plus, Emerging Leaders 365 get some cool perks for taking the lead on building our community for the better.

Make it Fun


Use games to learn about the work you’re helping, throw a pub-trivia style event for your co-workers or include them in the emails you send to inspire giving.
