P.A.A.R..

Philanthropic All American Rush

The goal of P.A.A.R. is to make fundraising fun, exciting, and rewarding. This event is a great way to focus the competitive nature of Greek organizations. Prizes are offered as incentives for Greek organizations, such as a prize for the most funds raised per chapter and a prize for the most creative way of fundraising. Prizes are paid for with funds raised independently of the competition. 100% of all funds raised goes to CHaD.
“I think this is a great opportunity for the Greek community and Dartmouth to show the world that we are a responsible school and service is taken very seriously here,” Matthew Lu ’13, founder of P.A.A.R.

Positive Tracks

Positive Tracks Youth teams have their total fundraising dollars matched through a generous matching challenge grant from Positive Tracks. In an effort to encourage youth to get out, get active, and give back to their communities, Positive Tracks created a challenge grant and support system that helps their efforts count even more for their cause. At least half the members of a team must be 23 years old or younger to be counted as a youth team. We strongly encourage you to form a youth team since all the fundraising is DOUBLED through Positive Tracks and their Funding Partners. Contact Liz Gray at CHaD if you have any questions on how to work towards this great match opportunity, how to set-up your youth team, or how to increase your youth fundraising efforts
