Thank you!

November 13, 2020

We at The Poly Post want to take the time to sincerely thank you for your generous donations to our mobile app crowdfunding campaign. Your support and generosity is greatly appreciated and will be crucial in connecting the CPP community during these challenging times. 

 

The $7,115 in campaign funds will contribute in supporting any app development expenses including upfront consultancy costs, developer accounts, and an app builder; any remaining funds will be used to support student staff stipends and camera drones. 

 

We are excited to expand the ways of informing and engaging with the CPP community with our coverage of the university and the local community. With that being said, the app development will start as early as next month with an anticipated launch by the early spring semester. Keep an eye out for an update with instructions on downloading the app around then.

 

On behalf of The Poly Post, I want to thank you for valuing student journalism and for recognizing the importance of students to exercise First Amendment freedoms. Your support helps us make a positive difference and encourages our continued commitment to inform and serve our campus community. 

 

If you’d like to stay up-to-date on the work our student journalists put out each week, sign up here for our weekly newsletter or follow us on Instagram and Twitter @thepolypost.
