You’ve been asked to be the campaign manager of
your workplace giving campaign – what now?
For example: A three-person committee at HGA works together to organize the campaign for the architectural firm of 400 employees.
Let you company’s executives know how important their leadership and involvement is to a successful campaign. Ask them to be visible givers and leaders.
For example: The University of Minnesota campaign char met with the Deans of each college to try to increase the rate of participation.
For example: HealthPartners set a total workplace giving campaign-wide goal with an increase over the previous years’ total. With support from staff and a strong network of volunteers, they increased participation among their 5,300 employees and met their goal.
For example: At their kick-off event, Hennepin County sells hot dog lunches and invites each workplace giving federation to staff an information table. Employees that visit each table are entered into a drawing for door prizes.
Events throughout the year and across the company keep the momentum going and help get more people involved.
For example: Imation invites the Minnesota Environmental Fund to its all-staff meeting to show a video and give a brief talk about our work.
For example: Ramsey County uses an internal online magazine to inform employees about what’s going on with the campaign.
To educate your employees about the Minnesota Environmental Fund, you can use our video, print materials, speakers, e-newsletter, or online impact stories. We can work with you to plan an environmentally-focused employee activity or event.
For example: The Minnesota Environmental Fund can provide a speaker from Eureka Recycling on ways to engage your office in recycling and composting.
For example: Mounds View schools prints an article about the campaign and donor acknowledgements in their newsletter.
