Making every step count

Fundraising Ideas

Your team has chosen to raise funds for vital equipment, life-changing services and medical expenses. Here comes the big and fun question... how can I do this?

Begin A Coffee Fund

Got some coffee fiends in the office? Ask for a $2 donation from everyone who wants a coffee. Feel free to get cheeky and charge $5 if they are desperate.

Email, email, email

Get your fingers running across your keyboard and tell your friends and family members all about what you are doing. How about setting up a wager, $2 for every 10,000 steps? Send them an email with a direct link to your page to make it easy.

Did you know that it only takes fundraisers on average 5 donations to reach their target?

Karaoke night

Everyone has a favourite song. Borrow a mic, prepare some snacks, dim the lights and have a karaoke evening with some friends. Put a jar by the microphone for people to donate before they sing. It's an easy way to get your friends and family involved and you'll increase your step count while dancing along too!

Car washing

Organise a Charity Car Wash at your company or in the neighbourhood. It will be a fun team effort and every donor walks away with squeaky-clean cars!

 

Dancing/Fitness

Enjoy HIIT, zumba and K-Pop fitness? Host a lunch workout hour at the office or in your community and get everyone to chip in for every session they attend. Plan the entire session in September and get your colleagues pumped up for the afternoon instead of getting into a slump!

Mini-Olympics between teams

Host mini competitions and have people tip who they think is going to win. One tipper will get 50% of the pool and the rest goes to the winning team's Steptember tally. They don't have to be complicated games either - why not see who can do the most pushups in a minute, or who can win a three-legged race down the corridor? Fastest to solve a Rubik's cube or complete a Sudoku puzzle? Most rotations with a hula-hoop?

Go casual

Let your employees dress down for a week if they manage to raise a specific amount of funds. Reward Steppers for working hard on raising funds by being able to let their hair down and relax in the office with a dress down week. If a week seems too much, why not just a day?

Phototaking

If you and your friends have a passion for photography, this one is perfect for you. Get your friends to pay a small fee in exchange for some beautiful photos.

 

Who's the baby?

This game can be played in the office during a well-deserved break. Employees get to guess who each baby photo belongs to and pay a small fee to enter the game. Winner gets a small prize! What better way to bond with your colleagues while raising funds for a good cause at the time?
