Blog Post 5:

This past class was great! We spent some time discussing how well the groups are all doing, what teams have done to work on fundraising, and so on. Basically, we all got caught up since it had been so long since we last met. After that, we went in to talking about the organizations that each group has reached out to. We spent time looking at the 990 forms for the organizations and then filling out our books that help us determine how successful each organization is. After looking at the forms and doing the numbers for three organizations, the Quantum House, Joe Dimaggio Children’s Hospital, and Miami Children’s Hospital, we decided to focus on the Quantum House. Although they were not necessarily the safest bet, financially speaking, they are local and the work they do is significant.

Towards the end of class we went around the room and had each class member share their thoughts so far. Did they think their team was working well together? Is one person doing majority of the work? What could your team improve on? The consensus was that each team needs to work better on communication. We all have these great ideas, whether it be for a fundraiser or for a charity to work with, but we are not able to get them across to each other. As a group we decided to try and improve upon this.

So far, my group has been better at communication. We have managed to set up a fundraiser next Monday, April 14, at PDQ. It is a family fun night. There will be raffles, food, and fun. 10% of the proceeds that night will go towards our fundraiser to the Quantum House. Please join us!!
