ORBIS will help you develop custom-made programmes that match your office's resources and interests . The number of fundraising concepts are limitless. Consider these ideas:
Promote monthly giving. Encourage your employees to make voluntary monthly donations from their pay cheques and match their contributions with a corporate donation.
Initiate corporate volunteer activities. Encourage your employees to volunteer for ORBIS fundraising events and match the hours they donate with a corporate cash donation.
Encourage donations rather than gifts. During holidays and other gift-giving occasions, ask your staff and your business colleagues and vendors to donate to ORBIS rather than sending flowers or giving a gift.
