10 Marketing the Campaign Be creative and make it “fun” fundraising. Share creative special events on the Facebook page for Key Workers. Use group meetings & the Speaker’s Bureau. Sponsor special events for your departments/agencies. − Money collected during a special event is considered undesignated Don’t take objections personally. All donations are voluntary so PLEASE, never coerce or strong-arm. Encourage payroll deduction…it’s the easiest way to give! Say “Thank You”! 10

11 Campaign BEST Practices Have a mini-Agency Fair Invite an Agency Speaker Have one or many department-wide Special Events Have your Department/Agency Head/Supervisor show support Ask employees to share their testimonial Hold a Department-wide meeting and inform Employees about the CFC system − Reasons for giving − General CFC information − Discuss brochure and incentives − Answer questions − Hand out Pledge Cards and ask for Contributions Say “Thank You” Read the Top 10 Fundraising Ideas and pick one to implement!
