Our Helping Hands volunteering is a project based volunteering opportunity for companies who are looking for meaning, practical ways for the employees to volunteer in their community. Projects include practical hands-on tasks in our services like painting, gardening and other DIY projects, skills-based volunteering and events volunteering.
Volunteering boosts team building and relationships, motivates your employees, enhances your company’s brand reputation while also delivering real positive benefits in the community.
Fundraising is a great way to involve your teams in your corporate charity partnership. Whether it’s a tea or coffee morning, cake sale, charity run or Christmas jumper day, raising money can be fun, motivating and it brings teams together towards a shared goal for the good of others in their community.
Here are some useful fundraising at work ideas and tips to get team going.
Have a company team take part in a COPE Galway challenge or fundraising event. There are so many different kind so events to choose from – table quiz, golf event, marathons like the Streets of Galway, Women’s Mini Marathon or the annual Business Sleep Out. If they are up for a tough challenge, they could take on the Tough Mudder challenge. Team fundraising events can be a real positive and motivating experience for your employees.
Payroll giving is an easy way for your staff to make a donation towards supporting our homeless, domestic abuse and senior support services. We can work with your HR team to set up a payroll giving scheme for your company.
