FUNDRAISING IDEAS

creative ideas for your office to raise money for this amazing cause

BAKE SALE: Have everyone whip up their favorite baked goods to raise money.

HOW MANY IN A JAR? Fill a large jar with favorite candy & office snacks. Ask everyone to make a small donation and guess the amount. Winner keeps all the goodies!

BID FOR THE BOSS: See if executives are willing to auction off a lunch time-slot with them.

GUESS THE BABY: Ask everyone to submit a baby photo, for a small donation people can enter to win small prizes and swag.

COFFEE DONATION: Skip your Starbucks run and donate what you would have spent (use the office Keurig to stay caffeinated!)

SPOTIFY PLAYLIST: Put together an office playlist for VLap training and RACE DAY! For a small donation, add your favorite song.

BRING & BUY BOOK SWAP: Have everyone bring unwanted wanted books to the office. For a donation, employees can take a new book home (this could be done with any other items too!)

TEAM TRIVIA: Create trivia game using free digital software with mix of TPT & normal trivia questions. Have teams of 4 sign-up for a $20 donation. Play one afternoon with light snacks & drinks.

LOCAL BAR WITH COCKTAIL DONATIONS: See if a local bar would be willing to donate a portion of a specialty cocktail.

DOUGHNUT DAY: Krispy Kreme offers organizations raising money for charity to purchase at discounted rates. Purchase & collect donations.

OFFICE POT LUCK: Volunteers and amateur chefs bring in a salad or dish to the office! Rather than going out and buying lunch at a local cafe, encourage the office to donate $5 and fill their plate up with delicious homemade meals. Healthy, cheaper than your local sandwich shop and for a good cause!

PRELOVED CLOTHES SALES: Preloved clothes are all the rage these days. Encourage people to donate great condition clothes they don't wear and then run a preloved clothes sale at the office.

TransPerfect’s Commitment

TransPerfect is committed to knocking out cancer through supporting the V Foundation and its initiatives. Each year, we host a fundraiser selling TransPerfect athletic shirts to employees. Total proceeds go directly to the V Foundation, and all employees who purchase a shirt are encouraged to be a part of the company video showing our support for the cause.

Since 2015, TransPerfect has raised $1.5 million for the V Foundation for Cancer Research. Over 1,500 employees from around the world have personally donated to the cause, including every person featured in this video.
