SOTA hosts a variety of fundraising events within the community in order to sponsor local organizations and assist them in achieving their mission to educate and advocate for underrepresented populations. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for members to promote the organization’s mission and stimulate interest in the field of occupational therapy.

STRICT deadlines for payments, so please send the payments on time.
Why do we fundraise?
Research is of utmost importance in the field of occupational therapy, because it is an ever changing profession. Research allows for growth and development so we, as OTs, can provide the best and most effective care to our patients. SOTA fundraises for the St. Catherine Challenge, which is a student-led initiative to raise money for occupational therapy research. The grants are awarded by the American Occupational Therapy Foundation. We appreciate all your support through your participation in our fundraising events!
For more information about the St. Catherine Challenge, check out their website here.
We also fundraise to send a family to Hands to Love’s Hand Camp. Hands to Love is an organization that supports children with upper limb differences. Hand Camp is a place for these children and their families to participate in activities such as arts and crafts, archery, music, and waterfront activities and enjoy a fun camp experience! Not only does SOTA have members volunteer at Hand Camp, but all the proceeds from our Kickball Fundraiser go towards sending a family to this amazing camp.
