Second Assessment Trip vs. Implementation Trip
Fundraisers are important for many reasons beyond raising money such as giving members the opportunity to develop leadership skills, raising awareness of the organization on campus, and uniting members on the fundraising committee. So, it's no surprise that EWB-Cornell has participated in many fundraising events this semester!
We kicked off the year with our "Walking Nachos" fundraiser, which allowed students on campus to add toppings normally found on nachos into a bag of chips of their choice. This successful fundraiser helped EWB-Cornell interact with the Cornell community. EWB-Cornell also partnered with Insomnia Cookies located in Collegetown for another Donation Day. On this day, Insomnia Cookies donates a certain percentage of its sales to EWB-Cornell's cause. Our friends and fellow students enjoyed purchasing and eating delicious cookies while contributing to a great cause! Finally, EWB-Cornell organized "Holiday Candy Gram Fundraiser" which gave students living on North and West Campus the chance to show their friends how much they love them by purchasing a candy cane decorated with ribbons and a note. With just an extra dollar, EWB-Cornell's members delivered the candy canes to the recipients as a surprise. This fundraiser was a success because... well, who doesn't love sending and receiving candy canes?!
In the near future, EWB-Cornell will be participating in the Year-End-Giving Campaign (information below), and we hope to raise money by kindly asking you--our alumni, family and friends--for monetary support. Next semester, we will be hosting our annual "Ice Skating Fundraiser" as well as a 5K Walk/Run that will be held in the Spring and open to Ithaca's general community.
