The Associated Students Finance Board emptied its coffers at its final meeting of the 2006-07 year last night, allocating $66,913.28 among 26 organizations.
During the four-hour meeting, the board heard 28 presentations from student groups. Members provided partial funding to all the groups present except the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation and the UCSB Sailing Team. The board also liquidated $29,510.85 from unused resources such as the culture week and first year council grants to reach its $66,913.28 total in unallocated funds, Finance Board Chair Nick Szamet said.
Among the groups funded were the National Collegiate Emergency Medical Services Foundation at UCSB and the Residence Hall Send-Off Dance.
Board members fully funded the NCEMSF with $8,200 to purchase gurneys and radios. The organization works in conjunction with Rescue 7, the EMS provider for UCSB and Isla Vista, to promote emergency preparedness.
