For those who are unable to fully commit to becoming a dancer, fundraising is for you! All you have to do is create an online fundraising account on Donor Drive, as a member of your organization’s team, and raise as much money as you possibly can throughout the year. Fundraisers, who raise $1,000, or more, will be a part of our highly esteemed Comma Club.

External, Finance, Internal Captains:
Being a Captain is a year-long commitment where you will be working alongside one of the members of the Overall Team; External, Finance, or Internal. Being a Captain is a great stepping stone to train to become a member of the Executive Board in the following year. As a Captain, you will be assigned to a single Overall to assist in any work they need to complete. You are responsible for attending any meetings an Overall cannot attend, help collaborate on ideas this Overall is working on and ensure that OwlThon is as successful and productive as can be throughout the year. Being a Captain is the best chance to see how OwlThon operates behind the scenes.
