This looks awesome! How can I get involved with Dance Marathon?

Great, we're glad you want to get more involved! To sign up for our Dance Marathon, just click 'sign up' to create/join a team and set up your online fundraising page. 


How do I join a team?

You can select a team to join while registering for an event. If you forgot to select a team at registration, you can go to the team's page you'd like to join and click Join Team



How do I change my personal fundraising page?

Navigate to your profile. From here you can see all of the events you are a part of or have been a part of. Here you can click Edit Your Page. Customizing your profile helps your donors know who you are, why you are participating in Dance Marathon, and makes you more likely to receive a gift to your fundraising page. You can also connect your social channels and update your fundraising goal here. 


How do I make sure people are donating directly to my page and not the overall event?

The easiest way is to share your Personal Fundraising Page Link. You can also share the URL that is produced after clicking the Donate button on your Personal Fundraising Page.


How can I send a thank you to those that have made donations to my cause?

Go to your Dashboard for your account. On the right-hand side under Your Fundraising there is an option to View Donations Received. Here you can select a donation by clicking on it and it will pop up a new window with the option to send a thank you to this person. 


How do I add an offline donation?

Contact your local Dance Marathon to make sure you follow their policy on accepting cash and check donations. If you do not know who to contact, reach out to the contact listed on the event landing page for instructions on who to write checks to and where to send them, as well as how to turn in cash donations. We do not recommend sending cash in the mail. 


I received an offline donation. What should I do?

All check donations can be mailed ATTN: Dance Marathon at DePaul University to the Office of Student Involvement at 2250 N. Sheffield Avenue Suite 201 Chicago, IL 60614. Make sure all checks are made out to DemonThon. Add a note that states the Participant Name, if applicable. This way the donations are attributed to the correct event and participants. Always convert cash donations into check form (cashier's checks are prefered) before mailing them!
