Many companies have a matched funding program whereby they will match dollar for dollar the amount you or your team fundraise. Even if there is currently no such program in place, they could be more than willing to make a donation and support their employees as they support a good cause (it looks good for them).
All you have to do is ask and you never know what you could receive.
After you've made the mammoth effort with your fundraising, ask your employer to match what you have raised and you'll instantly double your total!
Who do you ask?
It depends on the size of your organisation, but generally the HR department will be able to point you in the right direction. If you're in a small company that doesn't have a HR department, you can try asking your manager. Even small companies may match fund, so don't be afraid to put it out there!
Let them know what you will be doing (swimming relay style for 12 hours!) and what you hope to achieve (fundraising $XXX amount for people with MS in Queensland).
How do you ask?
The best way to ask is in person. That way you can easily express why you are doing the swim and what it would mean for you to have your company's support.
Don't be afraid to ask. Remember you're pushing your limits to help those who are living with an incurable disease. You should be proud and why wouldn't your organisation want to get involved with such an important cause?
Why should your company care?
You, as an employee, are a company's greatest asset. Their second greatest is their reputation. By supporting you in the MS Swimathon, your organisation is helping both its employees (that's you!) and its reputation, not to mention the 23,000 Australians who are living with MS each day.
What better reason is there to care than that?
Other ways to get your company involved
If matched funding is not an option, your employer may like to make a company donation, organise staff to volunteer, promote fundraising for you (or your team), pay for staff entry fees or organise company branded merchandise.
