What is THON Nation?

THON Nation is a new effort that allows ​alumni, parents, and supporters​ to fundraise on behalf of THON.​ ​ ​

"THON Nation allows alumni, friends, and family to join us in the fight. Our new platform enables you to create personal online fundraising pages through DonorDrive and invites friends to host individual fundraisers right alongside the THON community.

Alumni, family members, and friends of THON can submit their fundraiser on behalf of any organization. Fundraisers may include work dress down days, bake sales, restaurant benefits, sport watch parties, and many more.

Along with hosting your fundraisers your alumni group members can create a group fundraising page on donor drive to raise money. 100% of funds raised through THON Nation can credit the organization, Committee, or an Independent Dancer Couple of your choice."
