Not sure how to fundraise? Check out some of these ideas!

  • Put donation letters in your neighbors mailboxes. Download HootaThon's official letter campaign letter here!

  • Ask a local business to sponsor you. Follow this basic pitch:

Hello, my name is ____ and I'm a student participating in HootaThon's Dance Marathon on February 3rd. We raise funds and awareness for the Child Life Department at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia culminating in a 12-hour Dance Marathon.  I'm trying to raise $____ so that I can attend the Dance Marathon. Would you consider making a donation?

Or give them this letter asking for donations!

  • Create a personal campaign to get donations! Some ideas include:

    • Ask for donations for your birthday or holidays

    • Offer to do housework for your family and neighbors for small donations

    • Make up an incentive to get people to donate (ex. "I'll cut my hair at Dance Marathon if I raise $x!)
