Congratulations! You’ve raised your hand to run your workplace giving campaign. That means you must be a rockstar and everyone knows it.
Good news: We’re here to help you look good. Everything you need to know to have a successful campaign is below. Do a little copy/paste, work your magic and before you know it you’ll be boasting about the amount of money YOU helped raise for those in King County who need it.
Check out this quick video on how to run a campaign at your workplace.
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.
We can help too! We have Live United shirts, and often a treasure chest of other goodies like gift cards or sports memorabilia that we’d be happy to share. Email Nicole Hawkins to request an item.
Use these games and quizzes 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.
