Organise a corporate fundraising event at your company
Fundraising events within your workplace give your company the opportunity to encourage team building and staff satisfaction, while making a real difference to the future of cancer research.
Start small by requesting a contribution from each staff member in the lead up to a communal lunch, sporting activity or themed day. You can the build your engagement by hosting raffles, professional development dinners, or auctions.
ACRF can support your organisation to organise a company fundraising event. Your fundraising event might be in celebration, or in memory of a colleague, or it might be simply because you want to do something fun and exciting for your staff!
Which companies are participating in corporate fundraising events for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation?
PepsiCo is one of ACRF’s most active corporate supporters, fundraising over $12,000 at an event hosted by employees of PepsiCo and The Smith’s Snackfood Company. The event was held in memory of a much-loved team member, Agnes Connell, who lost her battle with cancer in August 2009. The company’s NSW and Head Office sales teams came together to organise an evening filled with entertainment including a trivia quiz, live auctions and live performances.
Woolworths Head Office at Bella Vista in NSW recently selected ACRF as their Charity of the Month. Through raffles, silent auctions and gold coin donation morning teas, Woolworths were able to raise a fantastic $16,000 for cancer research!
