“It’s not the stories you are telling about your company; it’s the stories that others are telling about you, that make the difference.”
Golf tournaments and dinner galas are no longer the only options for a charity fundraiser. Although these events may reach fundraising targets, they focus on the elite and offer little more than tax benefits to donors. Forward-thinking charities are choosing more unique ways to build their stakeholder engagement by moving toward a more strategic and intentional option for fundraising – the Charity Challenge.
Innovative, value-driven corporations all over Canada are using Charity Challenges as a strategic way to combine team-building activities with Corporate Social Responsibility targets.
Charity Challenges can take many forms, but the underlying nature behind them is to offer a challenging, adventurous and fun event for all people and, above all, raise funds for important causes. They encourage participants to get involved and stretch out of their comfort zone while, at the same time, raising money for causes that have touched them.
Charity Challenge participants have a fun, challenging experience that they remember and associate with the event and charity for years to come. They will engage their friends, family and colleagues to support them to complete the challenge, help raise money for the cause and share their story afterwards. It becomes a great way to spread your charitable message and ‘story’ through two of the most powerful mediums – word of mouth and social media!
“The Pinnacle team was exceptional to work with. They handled some big, tricky logistics pieces for us and did it with a smile. They were as engaged as our in-house staff and volunteers, and then some, doing some major grunt work. Pinnacle Pursuits excelled, not just in hitting the contractual obligations, but in nurturing relationships and elevating the experience for all involved.”
