How can your company participate?
Sponsor an employee. If you have a colleague who is participating, make a donation to his or her fundraising goal. Then encourage your employees to support their co-worker’s fundraising goal. Or commit to matching your employee’s fundraising total!
Choose an employee to participate in the SLEEP OUT! – a favorite supervisor, your CEO, “rookie of the year,” or have your staff vote. Then, as a company, commit to meeting the fundraising goal for that participant. Have fundraising events or jeans days or collection jars. Make it fun!
Send a team of people to SLEEP OUT! The fundraising goal is $1,500 per person. So, for two people to SLEEP OUT! the team goal is $3,000. For three people it is $4,500, and so on.
Your company will have a page on the SLEEP OUT! website for donations
Become a corporate sponsor. Packages are available from $2,500 to $25,000. Contact Sonya Thesing, firstname.lastname@example.org, (614) 298-4103.
What are we asking participants to do?
First, we are asking you to come to the SLEEP OUT! on April 20 and sleep outside – rain or shine, hot or cold. You will need a sleeping bag and whatever else you think will make you comfortable sleeping on the plaza outside of COSI. All participants will sleep under one large tent in a monitored and secured area.
Second, we are asking you to raise at least $1500 to support Huck House and our programs that serve young people who are in crisis, experiencing homelessness, or transitioning out of homelessness. You will have your own fundraising page on the SLEEP OUT! website.
How will Huck House help?
Huck House will give you fundraising samples for emails and text messages.
There will be an information meeting for participants in January.
On the night of the SLEEP OUT! each participant may bring one guest to the kick off gathering at COSI
All participants will SLEEP OUT! under one large tent in a monitored, secure area.
