Hi Hanegev!It’s that time of year where you need to think of where your TO money goes! Finish conducting your end-of-the-year fundraisers, and allocate your money. This can be any money raised at chapter events or donated by chapter members or people from your community.If you want to be considered for TO Awards at Regional Convention, your money needs to be turned in by April 4th. If not, the latest deadline is June 30 but we strongly encourage you to do it before then!!Here’s the quick breakdown:Your chapter gets to allocate 40% of the money you raise to a list of approved charities. You can allocate to the David Lindenbaum Scholarship Fund as a local tzedakah (and you must do this if people from your chapter want to apply for scholarship for conventions next year)!Here’s the link to the form: It’s easy, fun, and meaningful!http://www.usy.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/allocations_form.pdf
We have done a good job raising money this year, and now is the time when your chapter gets to step up and really make a difference. This is a way to truly influence others and improve lives in America and around the world. Please do your part and make sure your chapter decides where to allocate your money today!Thanks for all your help. You are all contributing to improving USY and making the world a better place!
Do good feel good,
Hanegev Social Action/Tikun Olam Vice President 2013-2014
