We are officially just over two weeks away from our race – and your fundraising game to this point has been unbelievable! We have officially broken $11,000, which means we are almost halfway to our overall goal of $25,000!
We did provide some fundraising ideas for our teams in the team packet that was sent to all participants (click here to see that helpful document).
One fundraising tactic that we’ve noticed is sometimes overlooked is employer gift matching! Some employers are willing to match donations to nonprofit organizations dollar-for-dollar up to a certain total amount per employee. What a great and easy way to help your team raise funds!
If you are unsure if your employer matches donations, your best bet is to check your Intranet and/or ask your HR department.
Thanks so much for all of your support – you are making a difference through your hard work!
