Johnson & Johnson, Donors Remain Dedicated to THON
In the midst of the insanity that was last week, a rumor came to our attention that Johnson & Johnson had decided to no longer donate to THON. After the national media’s often poor coverage of all that was happening in State College, which led to the misconstrued opinions of those outside the Penn State community, this rumor, unfortunately, seemed quite plausible. However, Donor & Alumni Relations Overall Anuj Upadhyay has assured us that this is incorrect. This is what he said:
“THON has not had any company, individual, or foundation donors take back their contributions to THON. We have also been reached out to by alumni and companies showing their support of THON and The Four Diamonds Fund. Specifically, THON has had a very long and successful partnership with Johnson and Johnson, and that will not be changing during THON 2012. Actually, Johnson and Johnson has recently confirmed their donation to THON 2012 at the same level that they donated last year.”
As according to the 2011 Summary of Fundraising Activities, 9.98% of THON’s total gift income came from corporate donations. We can only hope that all corporate donors follow Johnson & Johnson’s lead, as well as all other sources of THON’s income.
