Below are some fun fundraising ideas to get your creative juices flowing and get your team excited!!
Compliment Grams: Sell balloons or note cards with compliments inside and deliver to co-workers.
Dunk Tank: Department directors and administrators agree to get dunked. Team members pay for each ball.
Tricycle Races: Contenders get donations to sponsor them in a tricycle race around the building. The winner gets a trophy.
Change for Change: Conduct a change for change drive. As a part of the drive, give all of the Leadership Team a bucket with their picture next to it. Any coins add to the total amount and dollar bills take away from total. Leadership that raises the least has to complete a funny challenge -wear a wig for the day, swap jobs, pay for lunch, etc.
Bail Me Out: Handcuff two willing fundraisers and let them lose when they raise "bail".
Reverse Raffle: Team members get a raffle ticket and sell it back for $5 to avoid getting their name drawn to do something embarrassing.
Office Olympics: Team members make a donation and divided into competing teams.
Some ideas include a putting contest, paper football game, elastic band firing contest, fastest tie-tieing contest, office chair races, or the longest paperclip chain in 15 seconds. The team who wins the most events wins the Olympics! Have a closing ceremony to present medals or prizes.
Skunk Your Co-Workers: A stuffed skunk is placed on desks. If the skunk appears on your desk, it will only go away if you make a donation, You can avoid being skunked if you purchase anti-skunk insurance at the beginning of the competition.

RTH Team Members Step Up to Lead Capital Campaign
Riverside has been an important part of the Northern Neck region since 1989. While our presence there covers over two decades of service, the hospital itself has an even longer history. First opening its doors in 1964 as Tidewater Memorial Hospital, the facility was the result of the entire community coming together and raising several hundred thousand dollars to build a needed resource for health and wellness.
Internal Audit and Compliance Department Builds New Pathways for Giving
Each month during the past three years a group of seven team members in the Internal Audit and Compliance Department has set money aside for a special fund to be used for their colleagues' birthdays and special occasions. Over time, as schedules became even busier, the celebrations became less frequent. As a result, the fund was either under
used or not used at all.
