The Springfield letter drive - more commonly known as THONvelopes - is one of the easiest ways to contribute to THON. Members collect the addresses of whoever they know so that we can send letters to these addresses to ask if the person(s) would like to donate to Springfield.
The letter explains what THON is and why Springfield is a premier organization within it. About one-third of letters sent out yield a donation - so the more we send out, the better.
Many organizations chose to pair with Springfield through a company donation. Instead of organizing an event benefiting Springfield, many companies chose to make a direct donation. Springfield’s company sponsors range in size from elementary schools to small business to large law firms. Company donations not only help fulfill THON’s mission of eradicating pediatric cancer, but also gives partnering organizations significant exposure to a network of thousands of supporters. Join us in the fight, by making a tax deductible gift today.
Instead of making a direct donation, many organizations involved with Springfield chose to partner with us by hosting an event for their employees to raise money. Organize a dress down day in your office where coworkers can wear jeans for $1 with the proceeds benefiting Springfield. Another popular workplace event is coin wars. Create a competition between departments to see which team can raise the most money for THON. Organizing a happy hour or restaurant fundraiser benefiting Springfield can be a great way to raise funds to fight pediatric cancer while getting together with your coworkers outside of work.
