We appreciate your commitment to raising essential funds for DIPG research. There are a variety of ways you can collect donations. Each method outlined provides unique benefits and may be well-suited depending on the fundraiser’s nature, target audience, and the preferences of both organizers and donors.


We highly recommend collecting donations through an online platform for its convenience and efficiency. GiveSignUp is quick and easy to use.

This platform empowers event organizers to set up dedicated fundraising pages effortlessly while also offering features for event registration and ticketing if it is helpful for your fundraiser.



We recommend Pledge It if you’re planning to collect pledges from friends and family to donate for every mile run, hole completed, math problem solved, or really anything you can tally!

Facebook and Instagram Fundraisers

Facebook and Instagram provide easy ways to set up an online fundraiser on social media and raise money for nonprofit organizations. Users can create fundraising campaigns, share them with their friends and followers, and collect donations securely through the platform. Fundraising through Facebook and Instagram allows you to leverage the social network’s extensive reach and sharing capabilities to amplify fundraising efforts.

Venmo is a popular mobile payment service that allows users to send and receive money electronically. While it’s primarily used for peer-to-peer transactions, it can also be utilized for fundraising purposes. Organizers can collect donations by requesting funds from donors via Venmo, or donors can voluntarily send contributions to a designated Venmo account. Venmo provides a convenient and accessible way for people to support causes they care about, especially among younger demographics accustomed to digital payments.

Cash or Check

Traditional cash donations remain a common and straightforward method of collecting funds at fundraisers. Donors simply contribute physical currency, which organizers collect and tally. While cash donations lack the digital tracking and convenience of online platforms, they offer immediacy and a personal touch. Cash donations are often used alongside other methods, especially at in-person events like charity dinners or auctions.

All checks should be made payable to ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation and mailed to:

ChadTough Defeat DIPG Foundation
PO Box 907
Saline, MI 48176
