Making a Difference

Over the past three years, Hunter’s Fund has created a nationwide college coalition. What started as a fundraising initiative at Syracuse University rapidly spread to 25 different campuses with more than 800 volunteers coming onboard. This past year, the group added 87 new sponsors, doubled its volunteer base, and increased pledge totals to almost 13,000!

Making a Difference State by State
Multiple states enacted stricter laws against texting and driving in 2022 including more ‘points’ towards each offense and higher fines. Oregon holds the top spot with a $1,000 penalty for distracted driving. Illinois now assesses 10 points to drivers caught texting while behind the wheel. Other states following suit include Utah, Wisconsin, Alaska, New York, and Colorado.
