We’re wrapping up our work for spring semester having just closed out our first full academic year, and we wanted to send you an update!
Since our founding in July of 2020, we have raised $150,538 and redistributed $134,210 to 223 students over five rounds of redistribution. This is thanks to 786 individual donors who made a total of 1,377 donations, leading to a 300% increase in student giving.
You can see a breakdown of who and what your donation went towards funding this year below.
Throughout the year, we collaborated with the Fine Arts Center, Chinook Center, CC Student Government Association, TWIT, CC Athletic Teams, Class of 2021, student artists, CC Panhellenic, and the Llamapalooza committee to raise funds to support the CC student community. We were honored to receive the Involved Student Organization of the Year Award from CCSGA and the Outstanding Student Initiative Award from the CCE this year, and are excited to see what this summer and upcoming year brings.
Giving to the Mutual Aid Fund ensures that your gift will directly benefit students in the CC community, with 100% of every donation going straight to CC students to cover requests for basic expenses. All funds are managed by a group of student organizers that deeply appreciates and actively seeks out the feedback of the student population. We truly value your trust in us as student organizers and your commitment to the CC community this year.
