Like hundreds of colleges and universities across the nation, Earlham College, Indiana is fundraising to send students to the Energy Action Coalition’s Power Shift 2011 conference in DC this spring. With the conference on April 15- 18 and rapidly approaching, they’ve come up with a unique way of raising awareness and funds at the same time- Cookie sales.
In years past, students have relied heavily on grants from their campus departments, presidents, or student government; this year, however, alternative sources of funding have become extremely important. Earlham College has most definitely embraced this sentiment and had a lot of fun with the fundraising idea they came up with.
