To support our mission, donors gave over $1,000,000 this past year. We celebrated our first joint fundraising golf tournament with the Meals on Wheels programs of Chapel Hill/Carrboro and Durham in October 2014. This was a great opportunity to raise awareness in the Triangle for our three programs that collectively feed over 2,000 seniors every week day. An unfortunate blast of winter weather caused us to cancel our Fat Tuesday Gala, but we were able to turn the auction into a successful online event and we raised funds to purchase over 18,000 meals. Our Fat Tuesday Gala will return with even more exciting plans next year on February
In Edith Wharton’s book Summer the main character Charity Royall is the daughter of the most influential man in town and yet she doesn’t want anything more than to escape from her small town of North Dormer and her lonely father figure that inhabits it. Mr. Royall took her down from the Mountain when she was a child and has raised her as his own since she was young, but after the death of his wife he has resorted to drinking to heal his loneliness, and later in his weakened state turns to Charity to cure his loneliness. Though his first proposal could be seen as “disgusting” and “incest” in that he tries to enter Charity’s room while he is drunk, when he later asks her to marry him for the third time, he is clear headed and believes this is the best option for Charity. At first Charity is disgusted by herself for giving in to Mr. Royall’s advances, after a silent agreement between her and Mr. Royall in which she realizes he has no intention of making her do anything she doesn’t want to do, she realizes that this is the best outcome for her and accepts her fate.

During the nineteenth century charity was viewed as a way the rich could earn salvation by caring for the less fortunate. Being apart of this group disabled people were affected by the inequalities in the system. The growth of capitalism and industrialization led to a change in family dynamics as more people were leaving the home and working in factories and disabled people were in need of aid that they had been receiving from the family. The wealthy controlled the conditions for these workers entering the workforce and because welfare was paid for through taxation it became a way of social control. The wealthy paid more taxes so recipients of these charities were dependent on them. Any civil disobedience could lead in less aide for disabled
For this non-profit organization paper, I interviewed my grandpa. My grandpa’s name is Joseph Kraphol. He is the president of the Genesee County parks. In case you don’t know where that is, it is pretty much the whole Flint area. They have over 15 places to visit that are considered the Genesee County parks. Including things like nature trails, boat launches, campgrounds, parks, and the famous one, Crossroads Village. All of these are very popular and a lot of people know what they are.

The Charity Organization Society was based in the scientific movement of organizations. Workers believed that charity work needed more definition and organization and that charity should be focused more on individual need rather than as a whole population. Focusing on individual need was intended to improve relief operations while making resources more efficient. They also intended to eliminate public outdoor relief. With the promotion of more organization and efficiency the new Charity Organization Societies were born. Trattner states that these new requirements for organization and efficiency spread so “rapidly that within 6 years 25 cities had such organizations and by the turn of the century there were some 138 of them in
After much contemplation and careful assessment of the two charities, I have concluded that GiveDirectly is the fitting charity for the class to donate its $300 to. Although the Against Malaria Foundation or AMF was rated higher on GiveWells than its counter part GiveDirectly, I believe that GiveDirectly, if given the needed resources, will have a much greater overall impact compared to that of AMF (GiveWell). This is due to GiveDirectly having a greater effect on families it donates to, as well as the overall economy of the state, and through that, the overall lives of everyone including those that did not receive the funds directly.
He began a fund-raising project. The goal was a dozen laptops and a server for a school. It would not be any ordinary school. Not one run by the government or dictated by Al Qaeda or the Taliban. One that is open to education for all.
