At Sutter's Mill, national money is raised for Democratic members of the House of Representatives. Sutter's Mill works closely with campaigns to make sure a local and national fundraising profile is maintained. Alden has also been volunteering for the Sewanee Annual Fund by making phone calls and helping with Sewanee Club events. Alden plans on going back to school, and would like to earn a Master's in International Relations (or some related field) and a J.D. in International Law and ultimately work for a non-profit that focuses on women and children in developing countries.
