Make a difference in the life of a child.
Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our committee, THON Finance, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. Since 1977, THONTM has raised over $180 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital. Throughout our partnership, we have ensured that over 4,000 families have not seen a single medical bill. In addition, the local research that is being done is making a global impact so that one day, we will find a cure. Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon.
The mission of the Finance Committee is to support THON in its fundraising efforts by securly processing all monetary donations to uphold the integrity of THON. In addition to tracking all organization totals, Finance also finalizes the THON Weekend total, the monetary representation of the THON Community's year- long fundraising effort For The Kids®. The Finance Committee spends hundreds of hours in the THON Office recording checks, depositing cash donations, and assisting THON Chairs and donors. We could not do what we do without the generosity of our stakeholders.
