Jagathon: IUPUI’s Dance Marathon would not be what it is today without the help of many local, regional, and national sponsors. Sponsors have the chance to be an integral part of the largest student-run philanthropy on IUPUI’s campus.
Becoming one of our partners provides your organization with the opportunity to give back to Riley, IUPUI, and the greater Indianapolis community and to help create new miracles. Through your generosity, your organization will have the opporunity to gain exposure to our over 1,250 dancers and thousands of social media follwers.
Jagathon aims to provide our partners valuable marketing and promotional opportunities that extend throughout the greater Central Indiana community. In addition to monetary donations, Jagathon also graciously welcomes in-kind donations. We rely on the generosity of sponsors like you to provide many donations for our silent auction, fundraising incentives, and event food catering. These donations help to feed our participants and to raise funds at our main event and multiple other community events. We are grateful for anything your company would be interested in donating.

To deepen their impact on philanthropy and to show their commitment to employees, many companies match the charitable gifts that are made by their employees. Each company has its own procedures for matching gifts. To learn if your company has a matching program, check this list.
If your company does match gifts, you may request a match after you complete your own online gift at donate.rileykids.org/jagathon. If your company uses an online platform for gift matching, you may submit a gift matching verification form through your company’s portal and indicate the match to be made to the “James Whitcomb Riley Foundation” or “Riley Children’s Foundation.” You will be asked to provide a copy of your gift receipt for your initial contribution. Gift receipts are emailed to donors immediately after the online gift is made. If your company does not use an online portal, you may request a gift matching form from your company’s human resources department.
If you have any questions, or have requested a match with your company for Riley Children’s Foundation that you would like to be credited to Jagathon, please email Ali Emswiller, Jagathon Vice President of Finance, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jagathon is appreciative of the generosity of many wonderful partners who support Jagathon’s endeavors for pediatric research at Riley Hospital for Children. Investing in pediatric research through Jagathon is an investment in the future. It is with the contributions of generous supporters that children treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals receive world class medical care. The research conducted at the Herman B Wells Center is shared worldwide, meaning that partner support enhances treatment efforts for children across the globe. Further, partnering with Jagathon encourages philanthropy in IUPUI students, which is a passion that we hope students will carry with them forever.

Riley Dance Marathon is a year-long fundraiser that culminates in a multi-hour event to raise money for Riley Hospital for Children.
High School Dance Marathons fundraise, plan, and execute their dance marathons just like collegiate dance marathons! The passion and enthusiasm exhibited with our high school dance marathons are no less impactful, and they are a critical part in the long-term success of our program.
Our High School Dance Marathons Committee is comprised of dedicated chair positions that assist and support our high school programs through every step of the process. This is where collegiate students work directly with the high school students on a peer-to-peer platform.
Jagathon was proud to partner with eight different High School Dance Marathons throughout the 2017-2018 school year. Altogether, these schools raised $130,878.07. See the schools listed below:

Dance Marathons are a great way to combine philanthropy with student leadership, while also organizing a fun event for students to attend. Many colleges also have dance marathons, so this is something that high schoolers can continue with after they graduate.
Is your high school interested in starting a dance marathon? Contact Claire Ralston, our Director of High School Dance Marathons, at email@example.com, for more information!
