Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goal of this project is to purchase a Macintosh laptop computer to replace the personal computer currently being used by Lake Superior Youth Chorus' choir coordinator. On this short notice, dollars were not budgeted for a computer yet it is critical one is purchased promptly as we are within 2 1/2 weeks of Lake Superior Youth Chorus' final concert and only fundraiser for the year, as well as conducting planning and notification for Lake Superior Youth Chorus spring auditions and Summer Sing day camp. The project will be successful if we are able to purchase a computer and any required software needed for Lake Superior Youth Chorus' choir coordinator to efficiently accomplish her work.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This request was to purchase a computer for Lake Superior Youth Chorus' choir coordinator, Jennifer Campbell, whose personal computer being used for Lake Superior Youth Chorus business was failing and requiring an excess of time to accomplish Lake Superior Youth Chorus activities. Receiving this grant on short notice was a lifesaver. A MacBook Air was purchased. Jenny stated more than once after getting the new computer, "This new computer has made my job so much easier and less frustrating. Thank you!"
