Case Comps: must meet with Susan Corley before planning any competition and secure approval You will not be able to sneak your event in without going through the calendar process. Offending clubs will have their event relegated to last priority. Clubs sort out conflicts between themselves See Jeff (B201) to get the gift form authorized & signed Take authorized gift form to Denise (D208) to pick up gifts Check on the Anderson webpage for Gift form 4-6 weeks for personalized, 3 weeks for large orders BE FLEXIBLE AND CONSIDERATE!

ASA Council Teach-In 23 Agenda UCLA Anderson Office of Development Access Anderson The Fundraising Process Where Does the Money Go? Who Calls? All Fundraising Keys To Success Paperwork Sponsorship Invoice Gift Donations
ASA Council Teach-In 24 Fundraising 101 Corporate $$$ is hard to get Lots of competition, so earlier the better Help companies make smart choices about where to spend their money The more professional and organized we are, the more money we can raise This is a TEAM EFFORT...even if you raise money for an event that is not affiliated with your club, it will increase overall ASA budget that is used to support YOUR club.
ASA Council Teach-In 25 Who’s Involved Corporate & Foundation Relations (CFR) MBA Program, Student Affairs Parker Career Management Center (PCMC) Alumni Relations ASA Leadership – ASA VP External Affairs and YOU! ASA Clubs
ASA Council Teach-In 26 Access Anderson Published once a year Lists all club activities for year Sent to numerous companies Get your events planned Its sort of the Who’s Who of Anderson If you have not sent me your club’s updates yet, please see me!!
ASA Council Teach-In 27 Where does the money go? All money goes to the ASA pool from which the clubs/committees get budgeted. The more we raise the more every club/committee benefits. 50% of incoming $ goes to ASA discretionary, 50% is allocated to your club. If you need more money, JUST ASK for it in an official budget request
ASA Council Teach-In 28 Fundraising and Budgeting Clubs that fundraise will be rewarded for their efforts Do not be concerned! Some clubs have more fundraising ability than others We take this into consideration but don’t expect that money grows on trees.
ASA Council Teach-In 29 Fundraising and Budgeting 1)Fundraising your club already HAS a) Submit your current fundraising contacts to firstname.lastname@example.org 2)Contacts from ASA if you need them a)ASA can give you a list of new contacts Companies recruiting next year Companies that donate last year Organized with Office of Development Randy Lakeman (email@example.com) The amount of fundraising you do WILL be positively correlated with the size of your budget
ASA Council Teach-In 30 All Fundraising All corporate fundraising activities MUST be coordinated through the ASA VP-External Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) or else we can’t disperse the money to you. Most of the fundraising is done during the summer and early fall, but can continue throughout the year. You must run the company by Clara first. For example, say the Marketing Association, the Retail Management Association & the Public Speaking Club are looking to gain sponsorship from XYZ Company. If all three clubs call without realizing the other is calling, and they receive three requests it makes Anderson look unprofessional.
ASA Council Teach-In 31 Keys To Successful Fundraising Solicit timely Be well-prepared Be professionally persistent: sell Anderson! Document your correspondence Ask questions before you contact the company Can they pay by personal credit card? Is the donation tax deductible?)
ASA Council Teach-In 32 Open Communication Be aware of multiple people contacting the same company Cross check with the Ofc of Dev for pending gifts ($$$) Document & use the sponsorship invoice located at: my.anderson.ucla.edu “Student Life” Tab “ASA Sponsorship Invoice Form”

The money is held in a UCLA account All club expenses must be pre-approved by Student Services (Susan Corley) Expenses for club events and activities are covered through the following: a Recharge ID# – Internal (UCLA) vendors LVO (Limited Value Order) or PO (Purchase Order) – External approved vendors Reimbursement – rare exception basis only!
ASA Council Teach-In 41 Expense Procedures (cont’d) Recharge ID# used to pay for club expenses when internal UCLA vendors are used (e.g., UCLA Catering, UCLA Parking) Clubs DO NOT have individual Recharge ID#s. Student Services will provide the Recharge ID# directly to vendors POs and LVOs used with vendors outside of UCLA (including ASUCLA Catering, Neli’s, Wally’s Liquor, Kinko’s) Student Services will assist you with securing PO or LVO #s Students are NOT to pay for activities with cash, credit cards, or personal checks. In rare cases, Susan Corley will authorize advance payment by a student.
