Your donations will go towards SAO mandated membership dues and events for incoming freshmen to immediately welcome them to campus during a transition that can be very difficult for many first-generation/LSES students. Additionally, we have big ideas to organize an annual retreat and a Midwestern first-generation student conference on top of regular programming that both brings together 1stG ND and promotes conversation on campus about some of the lesser known issues at Notre Dame that affect this group of students.
One of the core elements of our club is that it caters to students who do not have as many financial resources and work hard to make ends meet. As such, we are hoping to grow our club and expand our programming without imposing an additional financial burden on those that wish to participate. With your gift, we will be better able to subsidize or even fully cover the cost of events so that members do not have to make decisions to partake based on costs.
