Wishes at Work enables employees of a company to join together and design a fundraising event or ongoing workplace campaign that fits the needs of their particular work environment. We are constantly amazed and delighted at the variety of ways in which employees raise funds to help us continue granting wishes.
If you would like to begin a Wishes at Work program, we would be happy to help. Contact our office at (780) 444-9474 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some tips to help you get started:
Today, many companies are looking to provide a link between charitable causes and their employees. We welcome the opportunity to participate in employee giving plans, corporate gift-matching programs and fundraising events hosted by corporate partners. Foundation staff and committed volunteers also are available to educate your employees on our mission and support company campaigns.
If you would like to include the Make-A-Wish Foundation® in your existing employee giving campaign, or if your company does not have an employee giving program but would like to establish one in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, please ask the person responsible for your workplace giving program to contact Zahida.Hudani@makeawish.ca.
Many medium and large-sized companies offer a matching gifts program. Contact your human resources department to see if the Make-A-Wish Foundation qualifies for a company-matched gift. This is a great opportunity to increase the collective contributions from employee giving or the funds raised at a special event.
