Quick Tip for Corporate Teams
If you’re an employee who has organized a team, reach out to your company’s management team to let them know and to ask for support. Here are some ideas for the kinds of support you can ask for:
- Ask your company to make a donation to your team
- Ask for incentives such as an afternoon off work for everyone on the team to complete their ride or a catered lunch for everyone on the team
- Prizes to be raffled off to people on the team
- Personalize Your Team Fundraising Page
Set a team goal. Add a team or corporate photo, logo and/or video message to your supporters. Update the text on your page to include your reasons for riding and fundraising. See the Home Group Realty team page as a fantastic example: https://secure.e2rm.com/p2p/fundraising/351197/team/953942
The person who created the team will be able use their login and update the team fundraising page.
