Giving Back while Having Fun

As the holiday season gears up and companies look at how to finish the year strong, many look at how they can give back to their communities. The desire for end-of-the-year holiday events for employees coupled with this interest in giving back has led to an industry created around giving companies both experiences in one event. Enter Philanthropic Team Building! We would like to highlight a few of our favorites, in case any of you are in the market.


The most popular for the last decade by far, Build-A-Bike combines clever problem solving challenges with assembling bicycles for kids. We partner your company with a local organization working with kids who wouldn’t otherwise have a new bike. Once your team has completed the challenges and assembled the bikes, we invite the kids receiving them to join us for an unforgettable moment.

Ace Race®

Got a really competitive group? The Ace Race provides groups with a chance to engage in constructing a mini putt-putt golf course out of non-perishable food goods. Once completed, which presents a series of challenges in itself, teams compete to see who can complete the course first. We partner your company with a local food bank, resulting in a donation which feeds a significant number of local families throughout the holiday season.

Rescue Bear®

Holidays may be toughest for families with kids battling serious illnesses. Rescue Bear gives groups an opportunity to complete challenges aligned with personality styles, and assemble stuffed animals (complete with adorable outfits) to donate to local children’s hospitals, fire and rescue, and organizations supporting families affected by serious illness.

A-MAZE-ing Builders®

Have a soft spot for animals? A-MAZE-ing Builders challenges groups to navigate a series of mazes, on a quest to acquire items used to support a local animal rescue organization. As with all of our events, there are unique challenges each team must crack in order to completing the mazes successfully. Once the quest is complete, we partner your company with the local animal rescue of your choice, and invite them to come share a moment with us.

Avoid the traditional holiday party and go for something original! You’ll create an unforgettable experience for your team, and make a lasting impact on your community. Reach out today—we’re here to help!
