AN ACT TO Create A Referendum Allocating the Student Activities FeeEndowment and interest account
The following text shall be submitted to the undergraduate student body of Georgetown University for referendum:

Social Innovation and Public Service (SIPS) Fund, $1,250,000
This proposal will allocate approximately $100,000 each year to support threedistinct programming areas that focus on: increasing exposure to service andsocial justice on campus, expanding opportunities for individuals to make animpact, and supporting student-led non-profit organizations and social ventures. The SIPS Fund will support these program areas through direct grants,organizational partnerships, and in-kind contributions and co-sponsorships. Any Georgetown student or alumnus (who graduated after 2001), and projects in which they play a principal role, are eligible for funding. A nine-person board comprised of three students, three alumni, and threefaculty members will oversee the SIPS Fund, which will be managed day-to-day by a student director and five-member student committee.
