Getting creative  - ideas for fundraising:

Bake Sale Ask your co-workers, family, friends, and teammates to bake a few things. Create a poster and hang it in your office, email your donors and invite everyone to attend!

Paint Night Organize a paint night. These evenings are popular and will not only generate some funds to help you reach your goal but it’s a great way to get to know members of your team! Many paint night studios hold frequent fundraisers for charities.

Chili Cook-Off Ask your co-workers cook their favorite chili recipe and enter it into a cook-off contest. Charge a fee to try the chili!

Wine Drawing Party Host a party and ask everyone to bring a bottle of wine and $5 to enter.  Reach out to a few local wineries/wine sellers and see if they'll donate a few bottles for your party.  Play various games where wine is offered as a prize!

Trivia Night Try a trivia night at your favourite pub, charge your teamates a small fee to join. You can have a lot of fun and even try speaking to the trivia organizers about donating proceeds!
