I am writing to express my gratitude for the funding I received through the George Taaffe Endowed Fund for Economics which has given me the opportunity to participate in an internship at the Charles River Conservancy in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
In my internship position I helped lead events with volunteers, wrote grant applications and helped out with other projects around the office. I have also created models and graphics for the Conservancy that allow it to better market itself and present the work it has completed to third parties. In addition to gaining proficiency and master of the above skills, this internship is allowing me to further develop my skills in communication, leadership and critical thinking. It has had a serious impact on my life and has pushed me in the right direction.
Thank you for your generosity,
Jonathan Goodman ’19
