Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 01, 2015
EUSA – Academic Internship Programs announced that Bottom Line is its 2015 charity. EUSA employees will fundraise throughout 2015 to support Bottom Line’s innovative programs which help low-income and first-generation-to-college students apply to and complete college.
EUSA welcomed Bottom Line CEO Greg Johnson and Chief Development Officer Jed Smith to its annual reception for partner universities on Tuesday, May 26.
“Our team values the individual contact they have with our students, so it’s no surprise that they selected Bottom Line, who also work intensively and personally with students,” said EUSA Executive Director Julie Kelly. “There’s a fantastic alignment of Bottom Line’s mission and EUSA’s commitment to provide study abroad scholarships to underrepresented public university students as part of the Generation Study Abroad initiative.”
Bottom Line CEO Greg Johnson said, “Bottom Line builds strong relationships with its students to ensure that they not only get into college, but graduate as well. We’re excited to have the enthusiastic support of the EUSA team, with their dedication to helping college students develop and integrate academic, personal, and professional skills.”
EUSA’s charity program launched in 2014. EUSA employees nominate and vote on a range of educational charities. EUSA gives each of its offices in Boston, London, Dublin, Madrid, Paris, and Prague two days over the course of the year to devote to fundraising activities and matches the first $2,500 raised by its team. In 2014, EUSA raised $2,800 for the Malala Fund through activities ranging from bake sales to pub quizzes.
About Bottom Line
