I can’t believe we’re approaching the end of the semester already. I’m glad that in our last class we got to see how we’ve budgeted our money so far. Seeing the data all spread out makes it easier to recall all of the things that we’ve done in the last few months. I’m looking forward to seeing the posters from the groups.
Mainly, I had no idea that our fundraising had been so successful. I know we have some events coming up that will probably drain off whatever funds remain, but I was really intrigued by the start-up money we voted to give today. With upcoming incarnations of this class, and with LRO, there are probably a lot of issues that require funding more immediately, things like emergency healthcare and the CTA cards. But maybe a microfinance program could be a side project – and a way for more people to get involved, who don’t actually have time or aren’t near Loyola but could give a few dollars to entrepreneurs.
