Casual to Conquer: Workplace Fundraiser for Childhood Cancer Foundation

by St. Baldrick's Foundation
April 30, 2013

Host a Casual to Conquer fundraiser in your office to raise money for children’s cancer research with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation! Empower your employees to have a little fun with casual days that makes an impact for children with cancer.

“Casual to Conquer is not only a great way to support a cause our firm has embraced, but a great way to enhance employee morale. Some mornings it just makes getting off to work easier knowing you can slip into a pair of jeans and flip-flops.”
-Kristin Downey, Director of Human Resources, AmWINS Group, Inc.

Since 2011, AmWINS has raised $28,000  for childhood cancer research through their Casual to Conquer fundraisers.

What is Casual to Conquer?
Participation varies by company and could take place on a single day, or even every Friday, or perhaps all year long for those over-achievers! Get creative with what this day could look like, and then have employees collect donations to participate.

Casual to Conquer themes could be:

  • Flip Flop Fridays: Bare your toes
  • Denim Days: Wear your favorite blue jeans
  • All Star Days: Wear your favorite team jersey or t-shirt
