How to Host an Event, Not as Part of a SODA Chapter

Hosting an event is the perfect way to try to advocate for organ, eye, and tissue donation before making the time commitment of starting a high school, college, or graduate school chapter.

1. Take the eligibility quiz
Is hosting a one-off SODA event the right fit for you? Take our quiz to find out.
2. Decide what type of event you want to host
  • You can choose between an in-person educational event, in-person registration drive, virtual educational event, or virtual registration drive.
  • All institutions have different rules for hosting events. Make sure you learn and follow those rules. For example, most colleges and universities require events to be hosted by a registered student organization. To help put on your event, you may need to partner with an existing organization. The administration at your school may also be able to help you find a way to put on the event.
3. Get Funding, Supplies, and Support for Your Event
  • Request event supplies and funding
    • Students hosting a one-off event are eligible to receive up to $50 in grants, as well as free SODA merchandise.
  • All event supply and grant requests may take up to two weeks to be delivered, so please ensure you fill out the form in a timely manner!
4. Share your life-saving impact with us.
We want to know how many people you educated about organ and tissue donation and how many people you registered as organ and tissue donors during your event! Let us know here.
