April Financials: There was a reminder that Fun Run money can only be used for literacy, since we stated this while fundraising. In the future we have to remember that that is a restricted fund. There was a request for receipts for reimbursement to be a separate transaction in order to make it cleaner and easier in the case of an audit.
Run for Reading Wrap up: Overall, it went well. The feet were successful. Some ideas for the future: maybe put a $ minimum for the feet. Having online donations was very successful as was having a stated intent for the money was successful.
