What can my workplace or business support?
The money you raise in your workplace or business can support any HHF campaign:
♦  Sponsor a Child
♦  Wanafunzi Dream Team for post-secondary education
♦  General Fund (education, food, healthcare, programs)
♦  Gifts of Education 

Become a Corporate Social Responsibility partner

A Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) partnership with HHF is a great way to engage staff with a worthwhile cause while carrying out the organization’s CSR goals. Nominate HHF to your board, charity champion or Corporate Social Responsibility team at work and take part in exciting and engaging fundraising activities!

Corporate Match Donation Programs

Many companies have programs through which they will “match” the charitable contributions made by their employees. Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your gift to HHF, making it go further. Check with your company’s Human Resources office to see if they offer gift matching. (If they don’t, you may want to ask your company to start one!)

Donate in lieu of registration or other fees

If you are a business owner or participate in activities that incur a fee, consider asking your participants to donate to HHF in lieu of paying the fee.

Donate used equipment

Does your business or employer have a collection of inventory that will no longer be used? We welcome in-kind donations of used equipment such as laptops for the post-secondary students, computer equipment such as mice and keyboards and educational freeware. Clothing and personal items such as dark blue jogging pants, warm jackets and rubber boots are welcome. Shipping is an issue so it’s best to get in touch with us with your ideas and we’ll help find a way to deliver your goods!

Donate a percentage of business sales

Do you own a business selling products? Consider donating a percentage of business sales to HHF for a period of time. This is a win-win! Your business has the opportunity to secure new customers while at the same time, support a worthwhile cause that you believe in.
