How did it make you feel to visit the charities you selected, to see their operation, and to deliver grant checks in person? What sticks out in your mind about that experience and what will you remember most?
* What part of the Main Street Philanthropy experience do you think you’ll remember most? Do you think you’re more likely to give of your time and resources in the future?

How did i feel? I felt like i was actaully help out a cause. Like i was actualy there helping them with operstions, but not actually. What sticks out is when we arrived, Chris and his assistant was out there in the cold, patiently waiting for our arrival.

The only thing i will remember is that the day we made our team. From there we actually connected with other people in our class that we normally dont talk to. It was a chnage or the first time in a while that i wasnt ready for.

Why is it important to look at the numbers before making an investment? What did you learn about your organizations when you looked at their tax returns?
What did you experience when you made your research calls to your charities?

Its important to look at the numbers to see if the charity is using their money the right way. We saw that Raptor Trust is actually using their money proficiently and with care, they spend well under 10% of their donations for events. We heard and saw that these charities are so anxious to talk to young adults about their actions and other actions that they take part.

Day 2 + 3

From the brown paper bag, to the selection of the MAD cards, to the creation of our team name. Its been a ride. It is separate from the rest of the school schedule that I do have from day today. Its a break from all of the same stuff everyday.
