The Campus and Community Fund

The Loving Kindness Fund
The Loving Kindness Fund was established in March 2003 by Fenmore R. Seton 38 and Charles and Dinny Wakerley to honor Phyllis Z. Seton. The purpose of this fund is to enable Dwight Hall member groups and individual Dwight Hall volunteers to engage in small-scale outings with project participants and enhance existing Dwight Hall projects through small acts of kindness.
Examples of activities that might be made possible by the Fund include taking your mentee or tutee out for lunch or purchasing art supplies for a student you think would really appreciate it, etc. Money from the Fund cannot be used on Yale volunteers, and in the spirit in which the Fund was established, the limit for funding requests is $75 or less. This does not substitute Campus and Community funding or UOC funding. This Fund is for spontaneous, smaller scale activities and ideas.
Applications for the Loving Kindness fund can be downloaded here and are accepted on a rolling basis through April 3, 2013.
Money is distributed through a reimbursement system. Approved applicants will need to submit receipts for their purchases (the receipts must match the items approved in the application). They will then receive checks for the amount spent, up to the approved sum. If this arrangement is at all difficult, please contact Michael Wolner at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options.
Once the check is ready for pick up, an email will be sent to the recipient.
The Reimbursement Request form can be downloaded here and must be submitted by April 17, 2013.
