Corporate fundraising events that drive change

The top 50 corporate foundations in the UK gave a total of £230 million to charity in 2019, a figure has been rising a while.

Corporate fundraising events have become one of the most powerful and impactful ways of driving positive change, supporting charities and fostering community relationships.

These events not only offer a unique platform for companies to showcase the importance of their corporate social responsibility, but also they create an opportunity for networking and brand exposure.

With this in mind, it is important for companies to plan ahead and consider interesting and innovative corporate fundraising event ideas that will attract and captivate guests.

In this article, we suggest ways that you can make your fundraising event a success.

Casino night

Why not bring the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to your event by hosting a casino night? Whether it’s blackjack, roulette, poker or craps, your guests can buy chips and play the night away. At the end of the evening, winnings can be exchanged for raffle tickets to be in with a chance of winning exciting prizes donated by local businesses. It is the perfect opportunity for people to network, have fun, and highlight your all important cause.

Silent auction gala

Silent auctions have become increasingly within the corporate world. Not only do attendees get the chance to bid on a curated selection of valuable items and experiences, but it’s also a great networking opportunity.

For charitable events, you will find local businesses and organisations will be more than happy to sponsor or donate items such as holidays, spa days, memorabilia, or hampers – to name just a few examples. Guests can enjoy an elegant evening where  they can build new business relationships whilst giving to a good cause.

Gaming for good

The UK’s video game market has come to be valued at 8.16 billion British pounds, so what better time to tap into the popularity of this growing industry than by hosting a charity gaming event?

Organising a video game tournament or even a virtual reality experience is a great way to engage the public with your brand as well as create a fun networking opportunity for employees and others in the industry.

Guests can pay a registration fee, and spectators can donate to your chosen charity to support those involved.

At the end of the tournament, participants and the winner can be presented with a bespoke designed crystal award to commemorate the day.

Gaming is the perfect way to engage a broad audience whilst demonstrating your company’s commitment to charitable causes.

Fundraising for a good cause

During the cost-of-living crisis, it has never been more important for businesses and organisations to give back to their communities and support charitable causes.

Corporate fundraising events have the ability to drive change, and impact lives, all while encouraging people to have fun and feel inspired. By creating these innovative and exciting events, organisations can focus more on their social responsibility and make a lasting change to their local community and further afield.
