Fundraising for the Workplace

Frock Up. Raise Funds. Frock Cancer!

The workplace is a great place to boost your fundraising efforts. Not only will it open up a whole new supporter base, but it’s a great conversation starter around the water cooler. Pitch it to your boss as a way to boost morale and earn some corporate social responsibility points. To get the cogs turning, we have come up with a few examples that have worked well in the past.

Register my workplace 

Host an office raffle or auction.

Spark your coworkers’ competitive streak and host an office raffle or auction. 

For raffles, you could do deals to encourage people to give that little bit more for a better chance to win. Source prize items from local retailers who may be willing to donate or give you a discount, and work those network connections for better deals. 

Who knows, the boss might even be willing to offer a special money-can’t-buy prize—like a no-questions-asked day off or a high-end lunch date. Let the bidding begin!

Host workplace 'Frock Fridays'

This October, arrange a casual Fridays takeover with Frock Fridays! Gather your work besties and don your most darling dresses every Friday—all in the name of saving lives. 

There’s no reason why the guys can’t join in too and really set the FUNdraising vibe. Keep a collection tin in the break room that lets everyone know how your fundraising is tracking and you’ll smash your goal in no time!

Workplace Frock-Off

Make it a competition! Whether you're in the office or working from home, you can organise a workplace 'Frock-off' for the ages. Choose a theme or let your imagination run wild. Charge an 'entry fee' for those wanting to compete and then ask the rest of the office to vote with their dollars! Pledge your donation towards the best Frock and then donate all the money to the OCRF in the winner's name.

Hot tip: why not make it a thrifted theme? That way you can support your local op shops as well as ovarian cancer research!
