ASCSU wants to help your student organization succeed in putting on programs & events. We are committed to ensuring the student body the best extra-curricular experience possible! If there is anything that we can do for you, please stop by!
What can ASCSU do for my student organization? RamRide Funding through RamRide Positive Impact Senator Representation Plaza Advertising – Whiteboards & Electronic Marquee Newspaper Readership Program Student Funding Board (SFB)
How do we become qualified to receive funding from ASCSU? Must be a registered student organization, recognized by the SLiCE Office Must have a student organizations financial account with a positive balance Its as easy as that!
What can be funded?
Where does my student organization begin? Send an to: Jordan will connect you with a SFB liaison to help your group prepare a funding request Plan at least 4 weeks in advance ~ the larger the program, the more time you need to prepare
Funding Board Meetings Funding Board meets Thursdays at 5:15 p.m. in the Lory Student Center President or Treasurer must be at the meeting in order to present the budget Come prepared with all documents and be ready to answer questions
How does the SFB decide to fund an event? 10 viewpoint neutral criteria ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to receive student fees ~ Effort should be shown in the form of funding from sources other than the SFB (self-generated, donations, grants)
What can I do to help my group get what it is asking for from the Funding Board? * Start planning early! * Visit the ASCSU office on the SE side of the LSC if you have any questions * Work closely with assigned liaison * Consult SFB Bylaws to make sure you are in compliance with all stipulations. Do not ask for anything that cannot be funded. * Secure at least 10% of the funds needed your program through grants, co-sponsorship, donations, or fundraising
Things to keep in mind… Student Organizations are eligible to obtain up to $20,000 each year Discounts ARE NOT a legitimate form of co- sponsorship
