Funding & Travel

Looking for money or resources for your project? Come here for help.

Browse the guidelines below to get started. If you have questions that are not answered here, visit the Finance Office (Room C212C).

Getting Funding

Do you need funds for a project or activity? Once you have completed your Project Plan and discussed your activity with our Events staff, there are two major funding options available:

  • Fundraising by your club.  When you actively raise funds, you are more likely to receive additional help from student government. You can raise funds in many ways — through auctions, donations, dues, charging admission to performances, bake sales, raffles, and more. Additionally:
  • Requesting S&A Funding:  S&A is shorthand for “Services and Activities Fees”. This fund is based on fees that come out of every student’s tuition for the purpose of supporting student initiatives. When a request is made for funding, the student government (ASG) decides how to allocate funds for the project and from which account. If you would like to request S&A funding, visit Submit a Funding Request in our Student Organizations section.

Making Purchases

If you need to make a purchase, bear in mind there are requirements for purchases for club/program activities. Learn about them on the Making Purchases page.

If you are considering any kind of rental — whether a tent, conference facility, a car, or something else — you’ll need to discuss your rental with our Finance staff first. Rentals are subject to liabilities and risks, and we need to ensure that risks are managed appropriately. Visit us in the Finance office in C212.


Does your student organization need to go to a conference or event off campus? Learn about our travel procedures on the Travel Requirements page.
