The Springfield letter drive - more commonly known as THONvelopes - is one of the easiest ways to contribute to THON. Members collect addresses of individuals they know so that we can then send letters to these individuals asking if they would like to donate to Springfield.
The letter explains what THON is and why Springfield is a premier organization within the THON community. About one-third of letters sent out yield a donation, so we strive to send out as many as possible.
Many organizations chose to pair with Springfield through a direct corporate donation. Springfield’s corporate sponsors range in size from elementary schools to small business to large law firms. Corporate 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 (THON tax code: 4-6000-376).
Instead of making a direct donation, some organizations involved with Springfield contribute by hosting a company sponsored fundraiser. Ideas include organizing a dress down day in your office where employees can wear jeans for $1 with the proceeds benefiting Springfield. Another popular workplace event is coin wars, a competition between departments to see which team can raise the most money for THON. Happy hour or restaurant fundraiser benefiting Springfield are another great way to raise funds to fight pediatric cancer while having a great time.
