Charity Team Building

We Can Help You Plan A Unique Charitable Team Building Event

Planning a well thought out charity team building event goes beyond the traditional goals of team bonding activities. Team building activities can be especially meaningful when paired with a corporate social responsibility element that benefits the community or a specific charity, especially if that charity serves the local community where a business is based.

Each of our unique, engaging and fun team building events can take on a charitable component. We can tailor the programs to the specific charity chosen by your company.

Giving back has never been this much fun and fulfilling! Our charity team building activities are designed to enhance communication and create new bonds while helping less fortunate members of your community or those affected by recent tragedies.

Our programs include building activity kits for children, backpacks filled with school supplies, building bicycles, creating essential needs kits for women’s shelters and more.

Our Most Popular Charity Programs

Putting Fore Charity – Canned food, boxed food, pool noodles and a piece of turf are just some of the “tools” teams will use to create custom mini-golf holes.

It’s time to get creative and the most unique hole design can win you a medal. You’ll also play a round of mini-golf to see who can the best putter is. The best part of this ebvent, all foods are donated to a ocal food bank or shelter.

Helping Hands – A truly worthwhile cause! More than just a team building or training activity, participants in our programs build prosthetic hands that are then donated to amputee landmine victims throughout the developing world.

Helping Hands challenges teams to utilize the potential of the hand parts to build an actual prosthetic hand, a better team, a better company, and a better world. In this globally recognized, purpose-driven, corporate activity your team constructs prosthetic hands that are needed by thousands of amputees around the world who cannot afford such a life-changing device.

Hospital Art The traditional hospital setting is exemplified by white, sterile walls and ceilings. Examining rooms, waiting rooms, corridors – areas where health professionals and other caregivers work, where families and patients wait – are too often colorless, lifeless, and certainly not inviting.

Get your team together for a fun paint-fest. We’ll make sure your works of art are donated to a hospital to brighten the walls and cheer the folks recovering, or assisting those that are. This event is:

  • A time to forget about your stress and worries.
  • DOES NOT require any artistic experience.
  • A Teambuilding event that benefits the community.
  • A fun way to comfort patients, families and staff.
  • An activity that can take place anywhere.
  • As large or as small as you would like it to be.
  • More than art…it’s a chance to love.

Comfort Kits Your team will get a good night’s sleep knowing they helped children in need get the same with these comfort kits. Sadly, most children who are homeless or placed into foster care have what few belongings they possess in a plastic bag. In this event, teams participate in challenges to earn a bag, that will give dignity back to this child, as well as comfort items, such as a stuffed animal, a bright and colorful blankie and books that they can call their own. Your group can even add a personal touch by decorating these items.

Teammates will work together to make a “no-sew” fleece blanket”. They will then work their way through challenges to earn items for their comfort kits. These can be books and bookmarks that can be decorated for a festive addition,  bags that can be decorated and also make-your-own plush toys.

Attendees will have a great time working with their colleagues to prepare these comfort kits to brighten the faces of children in need.

ArCANtecture – This event combines creativity and camaraderie with canned goods to produce outstanding results. In this event, teams compete to build the most innovative structure using non-perishable food items that will later be donated to a charity.

Teams are provided with a variety of canned food items to work with. All architects will be provided with the same project parameters for building their sculptures; however, they will all be inspired to come up with their own innovative designs. Teams may be tasked to get the inspiration for their creations from your meeting theme or your corporate tagline.

Our facilitator provides the worksite rules and gives each team their “paycheck” in the form of coins. Teams must budget wisely as they buy different colored or shaped packages of food and other decorating items from a supply depot to add to their sculptures.

Upbeat tunes provide a high-energy background to keep the action moving. In addition to building the sculpture, teams must also create a presentation board to introduce and explain their design. Teams then vote for the best (can’t vote for their own) and the winning team is presented with award medals. The event ends on a high note as participants hear from a charity representative that opens his or her heart to the group, accepts the canned food donation, and gives perspective on the importance of the donation to the people it will go to.

Red Wagon Brigade We all know how excited kids get when they receive a new toy. But, some never get to experience that joy. By participating in this fun team building activity, your group can brighten the lives of those less fortunate.

Our facilitator provides a brief introduction to the event and information about the charity group that will receive your donations.  Your group will better understand how the toys they will assemble and collect throughout the day will make a difference to a child.

First, teams put together a little red wagon at their table and decorate it with items such as streamers, balloons, pipe cleaners, construction paper, etc. The team that is judged to have the best decorations wins a toy to place in their wagon.

Didn’t win a toy for best decorations? No problem! There are other opportunities to win toys in a round of challenges that are played around team tables. Sample challenges may include:

  • Toy Trivia – Teams answer questions about their favorite toys. For instance, how many feet of wire does it take to make a toy Slinky? Is it 23, 63 or 103 feet? Teams answering 5 or more questions correctly win a toy for their wagon.
  • Name That Tune – For instance, what #1 hit by Martika in 1989 sung about a type of toy? If they guess Toy Soldiers they’re on their way to winning a toy for their wagon.
  • Banana-grams – Teams see how many words they can make out of letter cards. If they get a certain number in the time allowed, they win a toy for their wagon.

The team with the most toys in their wagon at the end of the event wins award medals. But, everyone will have an award-winning feeling when they turn the toy-laden wagons over to the charity to pass along to the kids!
