Special Initiative Fund

May 26, 2021

The Special Initiative Fund (SIF) allows Amnesty groups to take advantage of event or programming opportunities that would be difficult to finance otherwise. SIF provides support for projects that would normally be beyond the budgetary capabilities of campus groups, local groups, clusters, and co-groups. Funding decisions are made during the month following the submission by a five-member committee of volunteers, one from each region.

SIF Committee Members:

  1. Northeast – Nancy Manera  <[email protected]>
  2. Midwest – Jennifer Gallas  <[email protected]>
  3. Southern – Rodrick Colbert <[email protected]>
  4. Western – Glen Nielsen <[email protected]>
  5. Youth – Indira Walsch  <[email protected]>
