Workplace fundraising

Every year employees and businesses across New Zealand help us make time count by raising money and supporting our work through gifts and donations. Whether it’s through a partnership, donating a prize for an auction, or by supporting us individually through payroll giving, you can support our work through your work.

We’ve put together a list of fundraising ideas and other ways you can get your work involved. Whether your company is big or small, has supported a charity before or not, we are here to help kick-start your fundraising!

If you after some inspiration here are just a few ways you and your colleagues can get involved and raise money in support of MND NZ:

Bake Sale

A classic favourite. You can’t go wrong with a bit of cake! Get everyone to bring something in and ask for donations. Perhaps you could judge the baking and hand out prizes to the most impressive sweet treat.

Office Sports Day

Why not get competitive across departments and teams and host a traditional sports tournament at your local park? Dodgeball, netball, football - choose one to suit all abilities. Or you can make up your own sports and hold the tournament in your office. Office wheelie chair race anyone? Get each player to donate an entry fee. This is a brilliant way to encourage some healthy competition, and the winning team's photo can take pride of place in the office!

Get the boss involved

Get your manager or CEO onboard to complete a challenge if a fundraising goal is met (dye their hair a fun colour, take on the ice bucket challenge, get slimed etc.) Employees can either vote for their favourite challenge idea by donating, or simply donate to reach the fundraising goal as soon as possible.

Mufti/fancy dress day

Put a twist on the classic mufti day and get your colleagues to come to work in their PJs, black tie or themed fancy dress, in return for a donation.

Quiz Night

Get together with your colleagues and find out who's really the brainiest of the bunch by holding your very own quiz. Raise funds by charging people to take part.

Company Ball

Hold a staff and client dinner or luncheon. Sell tickets and/or hold a raffle and auction to raise funds.
