A.S. committee recommends money for fundraiser

Despite their previous practice of not funding fundraiser events put forth by various clubs and organizations at CSUN, the Associated Students Finance Committee members voted on Monday to fund the cost of an event coordinator for Niger Hunger Drive Week.

“Had it occurred to me that this committee would even consider an allocation, I would have asked more questions like?who (the coordinator) would be and what they would be expected to do. I was stunned by that,” said General Manager David Crandall.

The committee granted the African Student Organization with their request of a $251 transfer from Africa Week, another event also planned by ASO, to specifically go to pay for a coordinator at this event.

Crandall went on to express that the $251 the committee allotted was not a major cost and would not make or break the committee, but his concern was their consistency between varying projects.

Niger Hunger Drive Week will be held on April 23-28, and it will raise donations that will go to Africare, a non-profit organization out to make a difference in rural African life.

An additional $507 transfer recommendation from Africa Week to Niger Hunger Drive Week was made so as to pay for the soccer field for the charity soccer tournament also held within the week.

The committee also recommended $100 to ASO from the unallocated reserves for promotional costs of the event.

Other recommended allocations were made through the Academically Related Reserve Account, resulting in a total of $2,000 for five students to further their education and knowledge through attending programs and conferences outside their immediate community.

A graduate student from the English department was recommended $400 to attend The Great Plains Theatre Conference in Omaha, Neb. The same recommendation was made for a Cinema, Television Arts student who will be attending Project Cannes: Student Filmmaker Program.

A graduate student from the art department was also recommended the standard $400 recommendation to attend a conference titled Animals and Society II: Considering Animals, which will take place in Hobart, Tasmania. The conference will discuss the representations of animals in contemporary art.

Two students apart of the music department each received recommendations for $400 to help fund part of their trip to Florence, Italy for the CSU Summer Arts Program.

Other transfers and change of purposes were recommended by request for Water Ski ‘ Wakeboard Club, AS Ticket Office and Legislative Affairs.
