How do I fund my organization's projects?
Here are some ways you can get the money you need for your organization to operate. We recommend going through these in order as they tend to build on one another.
Tier 1 - Self Sustaining Funding
These funds provide the most flexible and reliable source of funding. They roll over from year to year.
- Fundraising - bake sale, merchandise sale, car wash, etc. ASOC will help you purchase items you want to sell if you need.
- Collecting membership dues
- Getting donations
Tier 2 - Club Co-sponsorship
These funds are often limited in what they can be used for and unspent money often reverts to the originating organization.
- Other student organizations - from their Tier 1 funds
- ASOC - yes, this is considered a co-sponsorship - go to the ASOC Funding page for more information
- Going in with other student orgs to request funds from ASOC
Tier 3 - Departmental Co-sponsorship
Departments have their own programming and services they need to use their money to support. Sometimes, they can help if you are planning an event that fits closely with their mission.
- Academic Departments
- Student Affairs Departments
- Remsen Bird Fund - specifically for bringing speakers to campus and available through the Intercultural Community Center and the Office of Student Life.
Tier 4 - Closing the Gap
Dean Avery is committed to helping students reach a particular goal that may be otherwise out of reach. She wants to see demonstrated efforts in each of the previous three tiers before she will consider contributing some of her limited money toward co-sponsorships. To apply for Dean Avery funding, contact OSL for instructions.
