S&C Electric Company, an electric power switching, protection, and control systems company headquartered in Chicago, had their most successful giving campaign to date this year, raising $98,000 for Community Health Charities.
How’d they do it? Friendly competition. Departments competed to have the highest percentage of team members donate to the cause, no matter the size of the donation. The campaign theme was “Our Giving is Growing,” and the campus was covered in posters of trees with empty leaves. Departments earned differently colored leaves on the posters as their participation increased. Team members who donated $5 or more earned an “I’m a S&C Giver” t-shirt and an ice cream social at the end of the campaign—by then, the campus was a sea of t-shirts. Over 50% of S&C team members donated, causing the 2017 campaign total to grow by 36% from the year before.
While the campaign lasted two weeks, S&C supports team members giving and volunteering in their communities throughout the year—it’s a part of S &C’s tradition of being a good corporate citizen.
