CPPA's Minute Fund project has ended and we reached 105% of our goal! It goes without saying that we couldn't have done it without you.

Your support will enable our classmates to travel to Washington, D.C., in January to meet with such policymakers as U.S. Representative Jim McGovern and confer with staff and alumni at such agencies and organizations as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Institute for Women's Policy Research. And in a first this year, CPPA alum Andy McGavern has arranged a special visit with other staffers at the White House! 

Your generosity in this giving season is so appreciated. And our gratitude is joined by warm wishes for a peaceful and joyous New Year.

From the grateful 2015 CPPA Minute Fund Team--Kelsey Barowich, Jessie Carredano, Lily Corman Penzel, Maria Delfin-Auza, Nick Fanuele, Heather Franklin, Mike Havlin, Palista Kharel, Ilvin Mendoza, Nene Okunna, Saumya Srivastava, Laura Sylvester



50% of Goal Met in First 48 Hours--Thanks to You!

November 12, 2015

We would like to sincerely thank all of our donors thus far. Your contribution helped us reach 50% of our fundraising goal within the first 48 hours of our launch! We know that raising the last 50% will require the continuing support of our friends, family and colleagues, so please share the word with them by posting our Minute Fund site on your Facebook page and other social media.
