4 Ways That Your Company Can Raise Money for Tech Tackles Cancer

Now that we are in the swing of things over here at TTC, we have been in talks with many companies who want to be involved in this year’s event. One of the goals for TTC is to not just have the company be a part of the event, we want the individuals to be a part of it too. There are many fun ways that companies can get all of their employees together, have a fun time, and help a great cause along the way. Here are 4 ways that your company can have fun and raise money for Tech Tackles Cancer:

  1. Raffles: Raffles are always fun, and you can raffle of pretty much anything, swag, gift baskets, tickets, or unused company airline miles (which is the case with some companies already fundraising). All you have to do is get together whatever it is you would like to raffle off, sell the tickets at whatever price point you set, and draw the winners. It is that simple, and it can be a very effective way to raise money for your company’s team.

  2. Company Event: Host a get together for your company where the employees can buy tickets to the event, give donations, and have a good time drinking, eating, and spending time with their coworkers. You can even put a theme around the event to make it more appealing (Oktoberfest, Fall Festival, etc.) Combining this with a raffle would be a great way to raise money for your team.

  3. Trivia Night: Trivia night has always been a big hit in the past from what I have seen. Getting a group of friends together to compete for a prize in several rounds of trivia varying from pop culture, to music, film, and other actually important information. Even for the smallest prize, it did not matter, because bragging rights is better than any prize. Charging an entry fee per person, or per team is a surefire way to raise money for your team. Another fun way to do it is to charge a fee for every wrong answer a team gives.

  4. Give It Up: To demonstrate how the smallest donation can make a difference, ask fundraisers to give up a daily beverage or meal and donate the money they would have spent to a worthwhile cause instead. Provide supporters with data showcasing the impact of $5, $10, $20 donations. Then encourage them to share their activity on social media and ask their networks to take action too.

These are just some of the ways that your company can raise money and have fun doing it. Of course, if you have your own idea, we would love to hear about it, so please share it with us.

Remember, many companies are willing to do a corporate match on charitable donations from their employees, so be sure to check with them to see if they do so.

Thank you all for participating in our event this year. We hope to see you on November 6th.
