Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA)
 is a community service project in which Marymount Business students help low-income New Yorkers prepare their income tax returns. In addition to serving New York City residents, the program provides valuable experience for the student volunteers. All volunteers complete a two-day training class taught by Professor Jill Beier to become Certified IRS Volunteer Tax Preparers. Volunteers also complete a one-day TaxWise software training class at the New York City headquarters of Deloitte and Touche.  

Between 2011 and 2015, 56 MMC students have volunteered with VITA and, collectively, prepared over 740 income tax returns that resulted in more than $932,000 of tax refunds to New York City residents.  


2015 Organizers of MMFI Fashion Show: Meloday Tam, Nina Carter, Ben Bathman, and Christina McDonald2015 Organizers of MMFI Fashion Show: Meloday Tam, Nina Carter, Ben Bathman, and Christina McDonaldThe Marymount Microfinance Initiative (mmfi) Club is comprised of a select group of dedicated Marymount Manhattan College students, who are committed to encouraging, empowering, and providing small-scale funding to entrepreneurs. The club’s mission isto promote social responsibility among Marymount Manhattan College students and staff; encourage them to better understand and take part in business start-ups; and emphasize the importance of small contributions, which ultimately culminate in substantial aid for significant entrepreneurial endeavors. The club aims to skillfully connect our community with passionate entrepreneurs in creative, hands-on, and engaging ways, by providing fresh and exciting events and fundraisers, which showcase these entrepreneurs.  The Marymount Micro-Finance Initiative and the MMC Business Division hosted Marymount Manhattan College’s first ever Fashion Night Out, a fashion show featuring Marymount Manhattan students and followed by a fabulous mock-tail party.  The models are dressed in clothing by designers selected by the club. The event has now become an annual Marymount favorite!

First and foremost would be the faculty of the Business Division  Each member of this team brings forth an unprecedented knowledge base in an array of subject matter. But what separates them from simply being intellects is their pride and love for teaching.  Coupled with the faculty would be the intimate class sizes. Marymount students have the advantage of having small classroom sizes which encourages more student professor interaction, as well as a more enriching study of the subject. Thirdly, I had a wonderful experience interning for Finn Partners PR Firm in their literary sect, MEDIA CONNECT. I developed and planned national Radio, Print, and Television interviews for Business Authors. I was privileged to work with authors such as Dr. Charles Richards, <em>The Psychology of Wealth</em>, and Matthew Bishop, The Economist US Business Editor and New York Bureau Chief, author of <em>In Gold We Trust.”</em></p></div><div class="lw_profiles_name"><a href="/live/profiles/855-jacob-webber">Jacob Webber</a></div><div class="lw_profiles_104"><p> Class of 2012, Major: Business Management with concentration in Entrepreneurship</p></div>
