SUBJECT: Funding for CSU
This memo is a reminder of the meeting we have today. The agenda of the meeting is to talk about what we discussed and to get opinions on the matter. As the campaign group for the CSU funding, it is proper that we use all means and to gather all that is in our disposal for the task. We discussed on how we can acquire funding, and we agreed that we should not limit our campaign to only seeking finances. The essence of this program is to help increase CSU’s finances so that it can services its activities. This can be achieved through the provision finances and by enforcing measures to cut down costs. CSU has tried such measures, in the past, to cut down on its spending. It has done so by increasing ...view middle of the document...
Students do not have money to cover for their expenses. However, graduates are a good target because they have experience and money to cover for their own expenses.

Mr. Kevin Pina,
Foundation for Higher Education,
Dear Mr. Pina,
We are a CSU funding campaign group, and our main program is to seek funds or to establish channels through which CSU can cut down its costs, and increase its financial resources. We have held a series of meetings all aimed at seeking the best and fruitful measures for the campaign. We tried to establish all possible means of achieving cost reductions alongside seeking finances.
Over the past years, CSU has had a shortage in finances. For a long time, CSU has had its funding fall far below its budget. With this continuous budget deficit, CSU thought of ways it can reduce its expenses and acquire funding. One of the measures that it established was increasing its tuition fees, which was a burden to many students. It later thought of splitting some of its course to increase student intakes. Another measure was increasing nonresident students’ intake to increase the revenue it collected in tuition fees without causing a strain on students. CSU also tried to cut down expenses by increasing their technology use and sharing services between campuses and departments. All these measures have helped cut down on expenses and in turn improve its financial resources.
Our campaign team has proposed measures of cutting down CSU’s costs. We seek to target graduates who can volunteer, tutor and pursue internship programs within CSU. We decide to have graduates as our target group because they have the experience and money to cover for their own expenses, unlike students. We expect this program to be a good cost cutting measure. We seek assistance in conducting this campaign, and we believe we can achieve a lot working together. We look forward for your consideration of working together.
Yuqing and William.
