In the role of Black Excellence Gala Chair of Ethos, the organization for students of African Descent at Wellesley College, I aimed to raise $3,000:
- $2,000 for the Kathleen Daly Student Scholarships for two exceptional black students
- $1,000 for the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America
In memory of Kathleen Daly ’80, an alumna who died of an asthma attack, I launched the organization’s first online fundraiser. My committee and I reached out to local businesses, alumnae, and academic departments to sell program advertisements and gather raffle items. Through their donations as well as the online fundraiser, raffle, and Eventbrite ticket sales for the Black Excellence Gala, we fundraised $3,900, surpassing our original goal.
