Shopping for Funding
It can be hard to get funding for your service projects in this era of budget cuts. But it’s not as hard as it may seem at first sight. Despite more than $100 million in budget cuts at Harvard, the Harvard Friends of the American Red Cross managed get a grant from the student government to train about 100 students in CPR or First Aid for free! Don’t be discouraged by the general atmosphere, but rather use your energy and passion for youth involvement to find funding to make your projects possible. After doing your Black Friday shopping, shop for grants for which your projects can fulfill the requirements! To begin, try your school, local organizations, and the Internet. Good luck shopping!
