Fundraising for Non-University Charities

Wharton-approved student organizations may only raise funds for charities that are nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations by facilitating individual donations that go directly to the charity.

This means that a club could purchase a giveaway and ask individuals receiving the item to make a suggested donation directly to the charity via a QR code/link.

A club could also host an event and suggest that attendees make a donation directly to a charity at the event.

In either case, the donation must be made directly to the charitable organization and cannot be mandatory to receive the item or participate in the event.
