Workplace coordinators often set participation goals instead of monetary goals. One good way to increase employee participation is to organize a Campaign Committee to address the issues listed below.
If you already conduct a payroll deduction campaign, the easiest, most efficient thing to do is to add EarthShare Washington to your existing program. If you don't have a campaign, we'll work with you to pick the best time for your EarthShare Washington campaign.
The length of a campaign usually depends on the size of the workplace. Large workplaces can have campaigns that can last one month, while smaller companies have campaigns that last one or two weeks. The two most important considerations are to make sure there is ample time to pass out information about all participating charities and to give employees the appropriate time to respond.
Pledge forms of many types exist. EarthShare Washington has a standard pledge form, which can be customized to meet an individual workplace's needs. ESW also offers an online pledge system that makes collecting and calcuating pledges easy, efficient, and secure. Contact us through our contact page for more information.
When you publicize a campaign, you add fun, excitement and enthusiasm to it! Typical campaign events include a kickoff event featuring charity speakers, information booths and prize drawings (prizes are often donated by charities or community sources). After the kickoff, you can keep employees interested in the campaign in many ways, including:
One effective way to inform employees about the choices they have in their workplace giving campaign is to schedule charity speakers. EarthShare Washington leads a Green Speakers' Bureau with speakers from a variety of local conservation organizations. Our speaking presentations can vary in length and subject matter to fit your needs. To schedule a speaker for your campaign event, contact us through our contact page or 206-622-9840.
Brochures and give-away items can help employees choose where in the community to lend their financial support. We can provide as many brochures and give-aways as you need. Some employers distribute a brochure and pledge form to each employee. If you plan to produce the materials for your campaign, resources to help you can be found at the bottom of this page.
Many companies sponsor bake sales, auctions, and raffles to raise money for their campaigns, which makes it fun for employees to participate. Employees and community businesses often donate prizes like weekend vacation packages and free dinners for these events.
