During my time as Treasurer with Lambda Pi Eta I have been an pivotal part of creating fundraising events. Lambda Pi Eta set a goal to raise money to buy Christmas toys for the children at Lutheran Hospital. For our first event we partnered with Jimmy John’s. A portion of every purchase with our flier went towards our cause.
The second event planned we partnered with the The Association for Computing Machinery. This was a “game day” where students could come and play video games, board games, and buy food and drinks. Half of the money raised went towards our mission to provide toys for the kids of Lutheran Hospital.
My experience in fundraising is very useful within the nonprofit industry. There will be many opportunities that present themselves through fundraising.
