The term “fundraising” in this policy refers to recognized student organizations that intend to raise additional funds through the solicitation of donations (funds and/or items), charge admission, or sell products or services. Fundraising may be for the benefit of student organizations themselves or for charitable groups.
If you fundraise for charity, non-profit, or philanthropic organization:
- Money cannot be deposited in your student organization account.
- Money must go directly to the charity, non-profit, or philanthropic organization.
- Any checks from donors must be made out to the charity, non-profit, or philanthropic organization.
Before a student organization plans any kind of activity to raise money, the organization is required to complete an Event Registration and Fundraising Request Form. Depending on the complexity of your fundraising efforts, timelines may vary from one (1) week to six (6) months prior to the beginning date of the fundraiser.
A request must be completed and approved for each individual fundraiser unless the event is for the same activity on a regular basis. The organization will be notified of approval. If a fundraiser is not approved, the student organization will not be allowed to hold the fundraiser.
