Hilltop Compost: Raised $531.90

We are Hilltop Compost, a social venture founded and run by Georgetown students. We provide a cheap, sustainable waste management alternative to groups in the Georgetown community.

We’re raising money to purchase our own compost bins, trolleys, signs, and uniforms, as well as cover our incorporation costs and a student stipend, so that we can officially launch our independent venture this semester.

Off-Campus Therapy Stipend: Raised $2,645.32

Donations are needed to fund vital off-campus mental health services for seven Georgetown students during the 2018-2019 school year.

The Georgetown University Student Association (GUSA) is collaborating with University administrators and Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) to develop a stipend program for students with demonstrated financial need who seek off-campus mental health support. The University has committed to implement this program, but funding is necessary to pilot the program during the 2018-2019 school year.

Access to off-campus services is extremely important for students whose needs extend beyond the short-term services provided by CAPS.

 

 

We For She Dispensers: Raised $168.20

The We For She project seeks to install menstrual product dispensers in every public restroom on the Georgetown's campus.

The vast majority of restrooms at Georgetown don't offer menstrual hygiene products, for purchase or for free. Offering them for free in all campus restrooms would reduce a financial burden for many students, faculty, and staff decreasing the stressors that students face during instances of sudden need. Even more importantly, it would demonstrate respect for members of our community and visitors by providing a basic necessity.

The money raised through SaxaFund will fund resources for a pilot program as the first phase of a long-term program ensuring free products in every building on campus.
