This year, we are excited and impressed with how popular this club has grown. We had almost two hundred students sign up at our table on first Friday, and we have currently heard from approximately eighty students who are interested in going to our Chicago conference (we usually take around fifty). With all this interest, however, comes additional financial burdens. We are responsible for raising the majority of our funds independently, which goes towards scholarships, travel expenses, conference registrations, and school costs.
This year, we are going to put a greater emphasis on fundraising. We will continue holding bake sales during lunch as well as Chipotle fundraisers. We will also help organize the Winter Formal dance.
For families who are looking to help us in fundraising, there are a couple of options. First, we are always looking for possible grants from companies and businesses in the area. If you think your employer is interested in making a grant/donation to our club, we would be very interested in communicating with them. Another option is individual donations towards our club. If you are able, any amount is much appreciated. If you have any questions or would like to contact us, please feel free to do so.
Thank you for your continued support of Model UN and the students of Southwest High School!
