CCELL has launched a new fundraising campaign, the CCELL Challenge, to raise $20,000 for an endowment account to annually generate income for CCELL.
Longtime CCELL supporters Barrett Kennedy and Peggy Reily will provide matching funds of up to $20,000 if CCELL meets the challenge to raise the money by the end of the year.
With interest from the endowment account, CCELL hopes to eventually fund
- community-university listening sessions and discussion panels
- end-of-semester celebration grants for service-learning partnerships
- travel to conferences for faculty, students and community partners
- grants for students to complete significant community-based research, design and/or service-learning projects.
Those interested in donating to the Challenge Fundraiser can visit www.lsufoundation.org/givetoccell for a simple and secure online donation process.
