Play-it-Forward with YumTum
Make a Not-for-Profit Team Happy Every Time you Book A Team Experience.
One happy team = Two happy teams + Greater impact on meaningful work
YumTum is excited to announce the launch of the “Play-it-Forward” initiative for teams! Not-for-profits, frontline workers and care workers undertake and perform some of the most crucial work for our society, however, have limited budget and spending when it comes to investing in team bonding, culture, and engagement. To empower them to make the most impact, it is essential that they are acknowledged, appreciated and feel valued. Through the “Play-it-Forward” initiative, YumTum offers you the chance to donate a free team experience to a not-for-profit, every time you run a team experience with us.
For every eligible team bonding experience you book with YumTum, one is donated to a not-for-profit of your choice, or to one of our partners. It takes just one happy team to sponsor an entire team experience to a team that cannot afford to run one.
Why donate an experience?
According to “Engaging Nonprofit Employees,” a study from Quantum Workplace, the nonprofit sector has some serious engagement issues. In 2015, just 58 percent of employees were engaged, and a combined 12 percent were disengaged or hostile. The numbers place the nonprofit sector third from the bottom among the 18 industries included in the study. By helping bring not-for-profits teams together, you are directly helping build connected and productive teams, that will have a direct impact on crucial social, environmental and economical projects they might be working on.
How it works?
1) Book an eligible experience with YumTum
2) Donate an experience to a not-for-profit team of your choice or support an existing partner
3) Run your team experiene with YumTum
4) YumTum runs a team-experience for the not-for-profit
5) Receive an email, a video message and a social media shout-out (optional) from the not-for-profit team post the event to share their experience
**The YumTum Play-it-Forward initiative was born out of the Engage-4-Good initiative run by the Atlassian Foundation. We are extremely thankful to the entire Foundation team and especially to Shruti Narayan and Paul Gyurasits, Atlassian volunteers who helped us launch this inititive.
