Proposal Title

The Pine Street Project

Abstract

At the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year a group of my classmates and I worked together to help solve a problem for Pine Street Inn, the largest homeless shelter in New England. We planned two major events and raised $500 for hot meals. After raising the $500 over the time of our class I decided to set a personal goal. I plan on raising $5,000 for Pine Street in total by the time I graduate with my masters degree in three to four years. I wanted to be able to help change something within my community for the better and develop my leadership skills and personal identity in the process. From there I have begun to plan more events and come up with new ideas on how to grow my goal to help other nonprofits as well. I learned about an event that other cities across the country have implemented called “GiveBig”. For this one day event, nonprofits in the particular city come together to help one another advertise and raise money through local businesses and larger chains that are in the city. In places where this event has been implemented the cities were able to help raise thousands of dollars for the nonprofits in just one day.
