There are a number of ways to get involved in your community by volunteering and fundraising. If you are looking to get your company involved in more philanthropic endeavors inside and outside the workplace, a great place to start is with Wishmakers At Work. Wishmakers At Work is a program that helps employees plan and coordinate fundraising campaigns to help grant wishes. Make-A-Wish provides opportunities for children with critical illnesses to have their one heart-felt wish come true. Relying on more than 25,000 volunteers in wish-granting, event coordination, outreach and an administrative capacity, Make-A-Wish directs every resource available to helping grant wishes.
Why Participate In Wishmakers At Work?
Employees are interested in working at businesses that take an active interest in their community. According to a Cone Cause Evolution Survey, 71 percent of Americans want their employer to do more to support a cause or social issue, while 81 percent say that a company’s commitment to social issues is important when deciding where to work.
Make-A-Wish is a great opportunity for companies to get involved with their community and boost employee morale. As the largest wish-granting organization in the United States, Make-A-Wish grants a wish, on average, every 38 minutes. Each wish impacts the lives of one individual, their family and hundreds of volunteers. Working with Make-A-Wish is rewarding for both the wish kids as well as the volunteers.
