From friends of Matt Shlonsky:

“I wanted to keep you updated on our progress over the last month or two. So far we have raised about $35,000 of the $50,000 needed for American University to start a permanent endowment. Once we hit the $50,000 goal, AU will begin providing grants to student and faculty to research ways to make DC a healthier, cleaner, and safer place! These donations have been gathered from an array of family, friends, nonprofits, local and national businesses.

We have a third fundraiser planned at Tenley Bar and Grill on April 26th from 6-10pm [4611 41st Street, NW]. The Facebook event is here. Our goal is to raise a few thousand more dollars at this event and awareness about the fund. Fifteen dollar donation at the door gets the participant happy hour deals all night.”

  • What happens to the money if you don’t hit the $50,000 goal?

      I don’t think there’s a time limit on donations, so I imagine they will keep fundraising until they hit their goal.
