Kick it Home for Families


Step up to the plate for this corporate fundraising challenge to house homeless families that engages employees at all levels and culminates in a fun kick ball tournament and party in North Boulder Park for participating companies. Here’s how it works…


• Encourage and inspire employees to rally around a cause
• Employees at all levels become philanthropists through many small gifts that add up to make a difference
• Create a sense of solidarity in the work place, regardless of title or rank
• Encourage both team-building and competition
• Provide a tangible way for companies and their employees to feel “plugged in” to their community


Phase One: Fundraising Campaign

Runs from May 1 – 31, 2018
• Companies run a customized peer-to-peer fundraising campaign for Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA)
• Departments and individuals form teams to hit their fundraising goals – these teams promote their efforts through social media, email, fun work-based contests, etc.
• All team and individual fundraisers work toward a company-wide goal, with a company-determined match incentive from the business (e.g. 100% dollar-for-dollar or up to a certain dollar amount match)

PHASE TWO: Culminating Kickball Tournament

Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at North Boulder Park
• Raise a minimum of $3,000 during the May campaign and get to send a team to compete against other participating companies in the “Kick it Home for Families” Kickball Tournament
• Fundraising successes are tied to kickball game perks
• Every employee who fundraises during the month of May is invited to join for beer, food trucks, t-shirts, and prizes, regardless of whether they are on the kickball team or not

• An employee base interested in making a difference while having fun and building workplace connections.
