, FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE VICE CHAIR
Nikhil Gogineni is a sophomore majoring in Biology. His dream is to attend medical school to pursue a career in the healthcare field. Outside of Molding Doctors, Nikhil works in Dr. Dussor’s Pain Neurobiology Lab as an undergraduate research assistant, is a Freshman Mentor, and is a cofounder and program manager of a non-profit organization called Famcore Foundation. In his free time, Nikhil loves to dance, listen to music, and spend time with his family.
Based on the success of the Spring 2017 fundraising project led by the Previous President, Saira Alex, during her time as Secretary, Molding Doctors expanded its mission to involve global and local philanthropy.
Thus, in Fall of 2017, these collective interests gave roots to the fundraising committee. Two leaders were appointed through a round of highly competitive and rigorous written applications and interview process by the core team. For the academic year of 2018-2019, Tasnim Yasin was appointed as Chair, and Nikhil Gogineni was appointed as Vice-Chair.
After another round of written applications and interviews, an official committee was formed based on the evaluation of their involvement
Fundraising Commitee Fall 2017
The committee’s mission is:
“To strive to inspire service, global philanthropy, and compassion in future physicians.”
In addition to fundraising for a wide variety of causes, both local and international, the goal for this committee is to give members the opportunity to have a level of personal attachment to the cause. Therefore, members volunteer firsthand to benefit the causes that they fundraise for, becoming both primary and secondary contributors towards the philanthropic effort.
