Adding incentives for participating in your Jeans Day fundraiser will help garner some more support and participation from staff.
Raffle – Add a raffle ticket to the list of benefits of participating in Jeans Day. Employees who make their donation in order to wear jeans to work will also receive a free raffle ticket for a raffle to be held on Jeans Day. Offer ticket purchases to non-jeans wearing employees to help meet your fundraising goal. Possible raffle items: Paid time off; Take a long lunch with a work buddy; Gift cards; Lunch with a senior staff member; Wear jeans for a week!
Gift Matching – Studies show that people are more likely to make a donation when they know it will be matched. Consider asking your employer to match all donations made toward your Jeans Day campaign or choose a specific day to “Double your Impact” and have them match all donations made on a date of your choosing.
Double Entry Day – Choose a day during your fundraising period where staff will receive double the benefits of participating. Maybe that’s two raffles tickets or two days of jeans wearing fun!
