I am starting a new team called the Queens College Speech Society - a brand-new academic team focused on public speaking and acting at forensics (speech and debate) events. The team is looking for a fundraiser expert who could share their experience in fundraising and grants. More specifically, the QCSS is looking for "fundraising coaches" that could assist the team in providing assistance with locating grants and suggesting fundraising opportunities for our team to grow and succeed throughout the year. We are a special college organization where we will require funding sources that go beyond our current budget allocations set by Queens College. I know that this might be a lot to ask, but even a small contribution will help in a big way! Just think of it, Queens College hasn't had an active speech team in over 20 years, but now you can help change that! We need as much help we get especially when we're preparing for our first tournaments in October and November.
Lastly, I want to also mention that the team will not only be dedicated to competing within tournaments. Hopefully, the team will seek ways to contribute to the forensics and the Queens College academic community by hosting future speech/debate tournaments at QC, bake sales, and community service endeavors that empower others to serve, grow, and succeed at Queens College. This will be a team not measured by the number of trophies or medals won - but rather - the team will be one that will be measured by the number of hearts, minds, and lives that we can touch. We're in for an exhilarating new journey and I am confident that we will succeed in our mission of bringing this exciting new program into fruition. I encourage you to visit our website at https://www.qcspeechsociety.com/ to find more about who we are and what we will be doing.
