Employee Fundraising

Supporting a charity through employee fundraising has excellent benefits for both the company and its staff. Besides raising invaluable funds to support Komen Greater NYC and help us achieve our vision of a world without breast cancer, creating an employee fundraising campaign will help:

  • Motivate employees
  • Increase teamwork
  • Create a positive workplace atmosphere
  • Give employees the opportunity to develop new skills

With our Ignite Online Fundraising Program you and your co-workers can track your success and make donations through a dedicated fundraising page. Click here for more information on how to get started on your Ignite Fundraising Page.

Be adventurous and have some fun with your fundraising campaign. Consider some of the following fundraising ideas to get you started:

  • Dress down day make a donation to Komen Greater NYC and avoid wearing your business suit or uniform for the day!
  • Bake Sale invite employees to donate home baked goods and host a coffee and bake sale for your colleagues.
  • Interoffice Challenge Plan a healthy sporting competition and team building activity that all company employees can participate in that will both help raise awareness and much needed funds to run breast cancer out of town!

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most match contributions dollar for dollar, and some double or triple the amount of your gift! Employer matching gifts may also be available to you if you are the spouse of an employee, a retired employee, or the spouse, widow or widower of a retiree.

Find out if your company will match gifts. If you do not find your employer on this list, please check with your company to see if it offers a matching gift program.

Here are three easy and quick steps to double or even triple your donation:

  1. Obtain a form from your Human Resources Department
  2. Complete the employee information, including your donation amount and method, and send it to the following address:

    The Greater New York City Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure
    P.O. Box 27963
    New York, NY 10087-27963
  3. We will do the rest by filling out our portion, sending it to your company’s processing department, and following up for the match!

The whole process is quick and the match will make your donation go much farther at no cost to you. It is also worth noting that many companies distribute donations on a quarterly or annual basis so the sooner you submit, the quicker your matched donation will be available to those that need it.
