Brian Robbins' Fundraiser:

QuEST Education Fund

THE STORY:

Donations are tax deductible

Since 1992, the Quaker Experiential Service and Training Program (QuEST) has provided over 125 young adults the opportunity to gain experience for future careers in the peace and justice field at over 50 social justice non-profits. For the last decade, QuEST Fellows in the program have received an educational award from AmeriCorps which is used to pay off college loans or support graduate school opportunities. Unfortunately, Catholic Volunteer Network did not receive their AmeriCorps grant this year, which meant that QuEST could not apply to them for us to become AmeriCorps members. The AmeriCorps Award was valued at $5370 this year. As the 2014-2015 QuEST Fellows, we applied to the program with the knowledge that QuEST might not receive an AmeriCorps award, but understood the value of the QuEST program as a whole. We were hoping the AmeriCorps award would come through, but it didn’t. 

As a result, we are asking members of the QuEST community for financial support in hopes to raise money to compensate for the lost educational award.

We are grateful for the many forms of support we already receive from Quaker community members and friends of the QuEST program. We are keeping our fundraising efforts on a small, grassroots level and any money we receive will be pooled in a QuEST Fellows Education Fund. Any donations received will be placed into an earmarked account under the provision of the QuEST program and evenly distributed to the Fellows after the completion of our year of service. All donations are tax deductible. The funds will be treated as if they were AmeriCorps awards and only used for educational purposes.

Thank you!
