Over the course of its 75-year history, Two Ten has been the recipient of gifts both large and small. It’s the small gifts and grassroots events in large numbers that have had the greatest impact on Two Ten’s ability to give back. Two Ten’s resources allow us to run a number of events throughout the year but with your help and grassroots efforts, we can touch many more lives.
If you are interested in running a charity event to benefit Two Ten, we have provided a few suggestions for how to get involved, below.
Types of Giving
Usually a set amount of money deducted from an employee’s paycheck each pay period for automatic donation to the employee’s designated organization. We can work with your company’s human resources department to make Two Ten an option for payroll deduction beneficiary. Or, see Payroll Deduction Form for more information.
79% of employees think it’s important that their companies match their charitable giving. Many companies utilize this as an option to support the causes and organizations their employees care about.
Special events can be a great opportunity to engage suppliers, customers, and the community at large. Examples include:
- Silent or live auction
- Golf tournament
- 5k run
Office or company-wide events are a fun way to encourage team building while giving back to the community. Events can range from low-key to competitive. Examples include:
- Sample sale
- Casual Friday
- Softball tournament
- Potluck lunch
A more robust multi-event campaign may be an appropriate option for larger organizations with multiple teams and/or locations.
