  • Start early and gain senior management support
  • Create and develop your plan
  • Promote and educate
  • Manage the campaign
  • Campaign completion – tying up those loose ends!
1 start early and gain senior management support
1. Start Early and Gain Senior Management Support
  • Organize your campaign committee and start working on your campaign plan early.
  • Support from senior management is critical to the success of your agency’s Charitable Campaign. Their leadership ALWAYS sets an example for other contributors and will emphasize the importance of the campaign.
  • Ways to get your senior management involved:
    • Ask senior management to send a personal letter to every employee asking for their support of the campaign.
    • Obtain permission to conduct group meetings or rallies. Ask senior management to be part of the program.
    • Ask senior management to thank donors at the end of the campaign through a letter or event.
2 create and develop your plan
2. Create and Develop your Plan
  • Don’t try to do it alone. Get others involved with creating and developing your campaign plan.
  • Ways to develop your plan:
    • Determine campaign goals (dollars and participation)
    • Have meetings and conduct training for your Canvassers or Unit Coordinators
    • Distribute campaign brochures and supplies, if needed
    • Include charity involvement, where possible, to emphasize the need in the community
    • Establish a reporting timeframe
3 promote and educate
3. Promote and Educate
  • Individuals that get to hear and learn about charities and programs are more likely to get involved and participate.
  • Ways to promote and educate:
    • Publicize your campaign dates and events through employee newsletters, bulletin boards and email.
    • Schedule a kickoff event. Use this as an opportunity to bring community awareness to your employees and educate them on the value of Payroll Deduction.
    • Have your commissioner or director send a general endorsement letter to all employees
    • Organize charity fairs for employees to learn more about services provided
    • Employee meetings are an ideal way to educate employees on the importance of their contributions.
4 managing the campaign
4. Managing the Campaign
  • After the kick-off of the campaign, it is important to manage the campaign through its completion!
  • Ways to manage the campaign:
    • Communicate with your employees weekly to provide an update and encourage them to participate
    • Monitor results and assist with locations as needed
    • Follow-up with Unit Coordinators
    • Report campaign results to your employees
    • Remember to say “Thank You”….several times.
      • Post thank-you messages BOLDLY in visible areas. Suggestions are bulletin boards, break rooms, or emails.
      • A simple “thank you” at your staff meeting is a great way to start.
      • A simple “thank you” at your staff meeting is a great way to end.
5 campaign completion
5. Campaign Completion

Last steps to perform before the campaign ends:

  • Make a final request via email for employees to visit the online pledge site and make a contribution
  • Report results to employees
  • Offer a final “Thank You” to employees and Unit Coordinators. These simple words not only show appreciation, but can also set a positive tone for next year’s campaign.
  • (Please) remember to submit pledge forms and money on a regular basis for immediate processing.
  • At the end of the campaign, make sure that all remaining pledge forms and fundraising monies are submitted…there might be stragglers!
  •  Pat yourself on the back for a job well-done!!! Your NJ community is so appreciative of all your time and effort that you put into the campaign.
