canning info

Canning is an opportunity to solicit donations from potential donors in pre-established areas around the Columbus community. The purpose of canning is to collect cash and cashless donations and simaltenously raise awareness about our organization and its cause. Canning is a simple way to get together as a team, spread awareness about the cause, and raise money that goes directly to your personal fundraising page. It is a wonderful way to kickstart your fundraising journey, and you can represent BuckeyeThon while having fun!

Football Canning

Football Canning involves students collecting donations before the duration of home football games. While students can enjoy the enthusiastic atmosphere of football games, they can also make use of the large amounts of people that will be at the games to ask for donations! We provide you with all of the resources you will need, including canning signs, TipTap, a map, and ideas for the elevator pitch. Football canning starts 3-2.5 hours prior to kickoff and ends 1-1.5 hour before the start of the game. To sign up for canning, fill out this form:
