Assignment is as follows:

**Create a GUI-based program to accept name of donor, name of charity, and amount of pledge from the user.
Display a list of entries in a JTextArea or JTable.
Submit the .java source file or files for this program. Do not use any package statements in your programs. Code created with a GUI generator will not be accepted. **

It compiles and runs fine. Teacher has asked that the following things be fixed. Struggling on getting these things around and fixed. Very green on this stuff.

1) You need to add the parts to the JFrame and not a JPanel

2) In the main(), you need to call the buildPanel() method.

This is done - 3) I would add a layout manager. I just did a GridLayout. I would get rid of the FundraiserGUI panel (by the way, this is bad form to name a panel the same as the class. It should be something different and start with a lower case letter) I would create 2 new panels, one for the buttons, and one for the info (name label, name text, etc). Set a layout manager to each panel. GridLayout(4, 2) for info, GridLayout(1, 2) for buttons (its rows, columns)

So is this - 4) Set a BorderLayout for the JFrame.

5) You need to shorten the labels,

6) maybe add a label to the bottom,

7) remove the package statement.

8) Also, the text field does not append correctly.
