Community Service Fund

What's the Community Service Fund?

Jim Gregoire '69 (gregadv@yahoo.com)
 CSF Board Member and Past Chairman
With approximately $800,000 in our Class Memorial Fund prior to our 25th Reunion, a task force appointed by then Class President Marc Miller recommended that 50% of the Memorial fund be retained under class auspices and directed toward (1) making a contribution to community service globally; (2) stimulating community service activity by Princeton students and enhancing their education through related experiential opportunities; and (3) providing members of our class with opportunities to become deeply involved with both students and community service organizations that are important to class members. CSF sponsored the first interns in the summer of 1996-13 placements with a grant total of $34,000. Since 1998 some of the host organizations are co-funding their interns, and the University's Work-Study Program provides additional support. In 2006 the internship program expanded to include all summer internships previously administered by Princeton Project 55 and received a name, "Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS), The Community Service Funds of the Classes of 1975 and1977 and members of the Class of 1970 have become major supporters of the PICS program, providing funding, organizational contacts and mentors. PICS annually places up to 80 or more students in summer internships. Since its inception, PICS has placed over 800 Princeton students and graduates with over 150 community service organizations involved in a wide variety of areas-the environment, health care, education, public policy analysis, legal services, etc. In addition, PICS has provided opportunities for financial support to other community service programs initiated by Princeton alumni.  In1998, and again in 2013, the Alumni Council recognized the value of PICS by awarding PICS its Community Service Award.
