Fundraising

Why Fundraise with Timmy?

Fundraising is an important component of the work that Timmy Global Health at IUPUI does.  Throughout the year, we collect monetary donations and medical supplies for our partner organization 7elements in Las Cañas, Dominican Republic. 7elements lacks the resources it needs to expand access to healthcare. Additionally, many of the patients in surrounding Las Cañas communitiesparticularly those that face complex surgeries and conditionslack the financial support they require to get the care they deserve. 

Our contributions help to facilitate the continued care of the Las Cañas community. More specifically, donations help finance hundreds of surgeries for marginalized patients, follow-up care for patients with chronic conditions, and the operations of low-income medical clinics. Financial contributions also expand the capacity of Timmy partner hospitals and support innovative public health initiatives that Timmy manages in the community.

Through this event, we strive to shine a light on healthcare disparities around the globe. Monetary donations are collected at the door, in exchange for glow-in-the-dark promotional items. This blacklight dance party is a great opportunity for students to have fun and to make a difference at the same time! Our ultimate focus for this night is to excite students about becoming driving forces for positive change—to make a contribution to a great cause, one beyond our own personal enjoyment, bettering the lives of those served by 7elements in Las Cañas, Dominican Republic

  • Spring Fundraising Opportunities

    2016 date auctionIn the spring, the IUPUI chapter of Timmy Global Health hosts A Date with Timmy: Auction & Dinner. The evening entails a catered meal, speakers on global health, entertainment provided by IUPUI students, and both a silent auction and live date auction of donated items. This fundraiser is, historically, Timmy at IUPUI’s largest event. It is a night of advocacy and fundraising, during which time we “auction off” leaders of different student organizations at IUPUI who have been paired with date package donations to different restaurants and entertainment venues around Indianapolis. All of the proceeds from the evening go directly to our partner organization 7elements in Las Cañas, Dominican Republic.
