The 10 collegiate institutions which make up the Northeast Conference have partnered with CCRF since 2010 to raise funds through a league-wide Money Wars. Since the partnership began, the 10 institutions have raised more than $100,000 for CCRF's Bear-Able Gifts Program.
In 2019, the NEC raised $13,841.21 with St. Francis University holding the crown for
the most money raised for the second year in a row. SFU raised $4,693.42 alone this year!

What it is:
Money Wars is a service program that gives students the opportunity to make a difference
by working together to help hundreds of children battling cancer right here in Pennsylvania.
Clubs, teams, academic departments, or grade levels can compete against each other to raise
money for CCRF that will help children and their families facing a cancer diagnosis. Your
donation helps CCRF create smiles, inspire hope, and rediscover childhood.
How it Works:
Students collect donations over a 2 - 4 week period. Donations can be collected from friends
and family in honor of a local student or loved one who has battled or is currently battling
cancer. Teams, clubs, departments, etc. can compete against each other to win a prize of
your choosing while also raising money for a good cause!
Stuck for a Buck: students/members donate a dollar to duct tape a Principal, teacher, or leader to the wall
Quirky for Quarters: if X amount of quarters are donated in a certain timeframe, a Principal, teacher, or leader will dress up in a silly outfit, have crazy hair, do a silly dance, etc.
Pretty Penny: if X amount of pennies are donated in a certain timeframe, a Principal, teacher, or leader will wear a tutu, tiara, and/or high heels for the day
