Make a difference in the life of a child

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Phi Gamma Nu, 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 $190 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Health 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.
By supporting THON™, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.

Since being introduced to Penn State over 30 years ago, Phi Gamma Nu has actively and passionately supported the Four Diamonds Foundation and THON's mission each and every year. Through providing continuous emotional and loving support to our families, maximizing fundraising to the best of our abilities, and spreading awareness of THON worldwide, our vision is to live in a world where no child or family will have to face the impacts of childhood cancer. With the help of our incredibly passionate extended PGN family and alumni, Phi Gamma Nu has been able to be the #1 fundraising general organization for the past 5 years! Last year, despite being in a pandemic, we were able to fundraise a record-breaking $147,826.36 all For The Kids. With THON being in-person this upcoming February, we are once again looking forward to another fantastic year! On top of achieving new fundraising heights every year, PGN also loves to support our four THON™ families:


Phi Gamma Nu is a Penn State organization that participates in THON™, in addition to our organization's primary purpose. Throughout the year, Organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State students across all campuses by facilitating fundraisers, as well as providing emotional support to Four Diamonds Families.
