Fundraising Resources

Every penny counts in the fight against pediatric cancer! The funds raised make it possible for Four Diamonds to continue providing superior care, comprehensive support and innovative research to the children receiving treatment at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. There are endless ways that your organization can fundraise for THON, but the following provides information about the easiest and most sustainable among them.

Alternative Fundraising Events

Volunteers can raise money for their organization by holding fundraising events throughout the fundraising season. Since first partnering with the Four Diamonds in 1977, the hard working and dedicated Penn State students have raised more than $127 million for the fight against pediatric cancer.
