The Employee Giving Program allows employees to participate in strengthening Queens by fundraising in honor of Queens Community House. Employee fundraisers and product drives help develop unity, create team building, and generate a fun atmosphere in the workplace! Giving is important any time of the year and we want to help you organize a fundraiser that best fits your team.
Here are some creative examples:
1. In honor of September Service Month, your company or organization may want to organize a charity run, walk, or even a week filled with fun activities including a bake sale, treasure sale, air-hockey competition, corn-hole tournament, and auction!
2. Many companies choose to develop a Jeans for Charity Program. This program encourages employees to wear jeans once a quarter and make a donation to Queens Community House in exchange. What a fun way to give employees a break from usual business attire!
3. Back-to-School Drives and Toy Drives:
- During the summer months, QCH collects new school supplies that will benefit children that participate in our after school programs. We would like to encourage you to join us by asking your colleagues to get involved and donate brand new school supplies and backpacks. If employees are not able to go out and purchase supplies, they are encouraged to make a donation to the organization. New essentials give children the confidence they need to succeed during the new school year.
- During the holiday season, QCH gives children in our after school program and families from our Eviction Prevention program brand new toys. We are able to do this because of the generosity of local companies.
Whether it’s a day, a week, or a year-long initiative, workplace giving helps all those involved.
To sign up today, please email QCH’s Director of Development, Ade Omotade at Aomotade@qchnyc.org
