    The Four Diamonds Fund

    The mission of The Four Diamonds Fund is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research. The Fund ensures that any expense associated with the care and treatment of children with cancer at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital will no become a financial burden for the patients and their families.

    The Four Diamonds Fund would not be what it is today without the continued support of the entire community. When the Fund was established in1972, donations the first year totaled $4,000. Through the generosity of so many, The Four Diamonds Fund has flourished. Schools, civic groups, churches, corporations, and generous individuals now contribute more than $2 million a year. Penn State’s THON has contributed more than $60 million to The Four Diamonds Fund; as stated by co-founder of the Fund, “THON breathed life into The Four Diamonds Fund.”
