    Hi there

    We have recently been twinned with a local branch of a bank. They will be getting their staff involved in some fundraising for our hospice.

    Obviously we’ll work to motivate the staff about the cause and provide support but I’m running short of ideas on what to suggest to them as ideas for employee fundraising. I have the basics covered like:

    Payroll giving, sponsored events i.e. marathons and treks, donating goods to our charity shop, organising their own or buying tickets for our raffle, collection boxes in branches, organising their own fundraising events…

    However I wondered if I am missing anything key…I’ll get their input of course but does anyone have any suggestions of things which have worked well with local bank branch or similar tie ups before? Things to suggest to engage their clients?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi, Jay

    First off, congratulations – sounds like an excellent deal for your charity.

    Second – my old mantra : the best fundraising idea in the whole world is the one you just came up with, if you’re the guy who’s got to make it happen!

    You’re right to involve the staff, and see what they come up with. Who’s to say they won’t fancy a black tie dinner dance as a fundraiser?

    You might like to have a look at my old Funraising Ideas pages ( and follow the links)- not so much as a definitive list as for something to use with the employees to spark their ideas.

    (And, for regular readers, I promise I’ll update those pages soon…)
