How much money do I have to raise?

A: As a dancer, you get the opportunity to be involved with ISUDM all year. If you raise $250 or more, you are invited to our Dance Marathon Weekend celebration in January. And it’s easy! Check out our fundraising toolbox for a variety of ideas to help you fundraise.

What is canning?

A: Before every ISU football game, Dance Marathon members pair up and comb the tailgating lots to spread the message of Dance Marathon and ask for donations. We meet on the East side of the Alumni Center three hours before Kickoff. The 2015 game dates are as follows:

September 5th : Northern Iowa

September 12th : University of Iowa

October 3rd : Kansas (Tealgate)

October 17th : TCU

October 31st: Texas (Homecoming)

November 14th : Oklahoma State



How easy is it to raise $250?

A: We make fundraising for our dancers super easy and simple! Check out our Fundraising Toolbox under the Fundraising tab or ask your Recruitment or Dancer Relations committee member for help!

How do I link my online fundraising page on Social Media?

A: Go to our Dance Marathon event page, search your name to find your fundraising link, and copy and paste that into your social media post. You can also adjust the settings so that a post/tweet is made every time you receive a donation!
