Do any of these fundraising problems sound familiar?

Too much work

Most fundraisers require countless hours of planning and energy, with little to no help from the company.

Too little profit

Many fundraisers are financially hit or miss, causing you to string together lots of little ones just to meet your budget.

Tired of selling stuff

Tired of hearing your parents complain about having to sell so much stuff? We get it.

Not enough volunteers

Is it getting harder and harder to find committed volunteers? Tired of having to do it all by yourself?

What makes Boosterthon so different?

Most elementary school fundraisers are too much work for not enough profit. Boosterthon provides a hassle-free fundraiser that raises schools a ton of money.

We understand that choosing a fundraiser can be overwhelming. There’s a lot at stake and choosing the right one can save you a ton of time and hassle. We’ve helped thousands of elementary schools all across the country smash their fundraising goal through a proven, fun, and stress-free program your whole school will love.

Proven Results
Instead of burning out families with lots of small fundraisers, only ask parents and sponsors once with a proven funding system that does it all. The schools that switch to Boosterthon raise 70% more on average.  Seriously.

Q & A
Q: What if it rains or snows the day of the Boosterthon Fun Run event?

A: Whether there’s a monsoon or a snowstorm the Boosterthon Fun Run event is always ROCKING! If your school has a gym, it’s likely the day of the Boosterthon Fun Run event will be held there at the scheduled times. And now with Boosterthon’s Glow Run, rain, snow, and cold can’t hold back the fun. The Glow Run transforms your gym into a pulsating neon celebration complete with rope lights, disco lights, and black lights. You’ll be amazed at the rave remarks you’ll hear.

If your school doesn’t have a gym, the Fun Run event will be rescheduled for a later date. Always check with your school for more details.

Q: How far will my student run and for how long?
A: Since the track is about 1/16 a mile and most students run 30-35 laps, your student will walk, run, dance, and skip about two miles to help their school. (Water is always provided as well.)
Q: How do schools integrate Boosterthon into their schedule?
A: Great question! Over the past 15 years, we’ve listened to thousands of principals and educators to find out the best way to incorporate the Boosterthon without taking away from instructional time. We now customize all our programs to work around school schedules (even the craziest ones).
Q: Where do I enter pledges?
A. Parents can log in and enter pledges at funrun.com. Simply use your school access code or search for your school.
