How to Build a Team

The Cypress Challenge

Teams are a great way to stretch your fundraising bandwidth. Each 'Team' has a collection of individual fundraisers as part of one collective group. Similar to the Top Fundraising Individual... The Top 'Team' is presented with a gift at the Fashion with Passion Event. If you want to be a team captain, you may be wondering, “how do I get started?” and “who should be on my team?” The best answer is to include everyone you know! The community is full of enthusiastic individuals ready to step up and help out!

If individuals don’t join your team… encourage them to donate on your behalf. Or, on the behalf of your Team.


Here are a few team suggestions to get you started:

Senior Model Teams

The Fashion with Passion Class of 2018 Senior Models are Team Captains. These 'kindness' minded young adults are responsible for jumpstarting the 2017 Cypress Challenge #18DaysOfKindness social media blitz. The Top Senior Model fundraiser wins a Senior Graduation Party at the end of the year! 

Family Teams

Ask your mom, dad, brothers, sisters, kids, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents to join you in showing their support. This is a great way for you to connect with your family for a common cause.

Friend Teams

Start with all of the friends you have in your phone list, along with email contacts, and all of the people in your social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn etc.. Reach out to roommates, neighbors, and people in your community.

Work Teams

Deep Cypress Alliance is a great way to bring you and your employees or co-workers together outside of the office. This is a way for your company to have a positive impact in Cypress.

Faith-Based Teams

Faith-based organizations of all denominations are caring, supportive communities. The Cypress Challenge is a great way to share the good word with good works.

School & Sports Teams

Reach out to your high school and college classmates, and encourage them to join you in driving awareness to the community. 

Teams by Neighborhood

Cypress has tight knit neighborhoods within the larger Community. Each caring for the surroundings they reside. Grab your neighbors and create a team.
