Your team can (and should) be the most valuable asset your nonprofit organization has, but if they don’t work well together or there’s a failure to communicate, your team can easily become the cause of more stress and tension headaches than moments of confidence that your organization is running smoothly.
If you’ve been dealing with bickering teammates, we have a few team-building activities you can use to turn those headaches into sighs of relief when you realize everything is running smoothly.
Shark Tank Style Team-Building Activities for Nonprofits
Your team has some awesome ideas, and while some of your members might be jumping up and down to share their ideas with you, others might be more shy. Hosting your very own “Shark Tank” is a great way to get them to pitch all their best ideas, and you can make it even more fun by turning it into a competition. Maybe the person/team with the best idea gets featured on your social media pages or wins a gift card.
This team-building activity has the double advantage of, not only building a stronger team for your nonprofit organization, but providing you with great ideas you might be able to implement to better serve your community and/or increase revenues!
Scavenger Hunt Style Team-Building Activities for Nonprofits
Feud Style Team-Building Activities for Nonprofits: Fundraising
You can host a lot of fun activities to raise money for your nonprofit organization, but sometimes you just need to get on the phone and make some calls. That’s not necessarily as much fun, but you can make it fun by adding a competitive element to it. Keep a whiteboard or piece of paper on display where you track your progress towards your ultimate goal, but also track how much money each team is bringing in and decide how you’ll reward the team that raises the most money. Even if the reward is just bragging rights, you might be surprised to see it can be one of the most effective team-building activities for nonprofits.
You can also play a game while they’re making their calls, but they have to hit a certain benchmark (made 10 calls, got a donation, etc.) each time they want to participate in the game.
Escape Room Style Team-Building Activities for Nonprofits
Sports are another great source of team-building activities because there’s already a competitive element to them, they’re fun, and most of them involve physical exercise, which helps keep your team healthy. Whether it’s a pick-up game of basketball, soccer, football, or even a footrace, there are all kinds of ways you can get your team outside, active, and having fun together.
