Imagine what can be accomplished with a grant of over $8,000 to raise funds for a charitable cause. But when more than a third of that funding is sunk into a dessert display, it’s hard to believe that money was spent in a way to best benefit the nonprofit.
Emerson’s basketball players must compete each week with the support of only 61 people, on average, according to the athletic department’s website, leaving the squeak of their soles to echo in a nearly-empty gym.
