THON Partners With Uber For Contest To Credit $20,000 In Donations

THON announced a new fundraising opportunity Wednesday — it’s partnering with Uber to credit $20,000 in donations to the top three organizations in a points contest. Students can earn points for their organizations by riding with Uber and using a promotional “team code” specific to the organization.

Organizations will earn a single point for every ride taken with the promo code or three total points for every new sign-up and ride. New Uber users should use the code THON 2017 to sign up and get the first ride free (up to $10) and donate an additional $3 to THON.

The points contest will end on February 1, 2017, when Uber will credit donations to the top three teams. The company will donate $12,000 credited to the first-place team, $5,000 credited to the second-place team, and $3,000 credited to the third-place team.

You can find the code for your THON organization here. To add the code to your Uber app, visit the app’s “menu” screen and then select “add promo” to input your team code.
