Clubs Discretionary Fund

 

This fund serves as a resource for new clubs without a yearly allocation as well as established clubs with unforeseen expenses for new events or initiatives. The fund is allocated based on requests received throughout the year.

FundRequirements / Eligibility: The fund serves as a resource for new clubs without a yearly allocation as well as established clubs with unforeseen expenses for new events or initiatives.

Amounts: Amounts vary but typically up to $200. Students should only request what they need so that the entire student body can utilize the resource. 

Annual Deadline: Funds are available throughout the academic school year. Clubs with budgets are encouraged to use their entire budget first, before requesting additional funding through the discretionary fund.

Examples of projects: In the fall of 2017, this fund helped the Golf Club and Roosevelt at the 5C's to get their clubs started as they were chartered after budget allocations. During the same time period, this fund has also covered unforseen expenses from a Halloween Carnival, Sex Week (a week of event programming to educate, start conversations about the campus sex culture, and offer free STI testing for students), and multiple benefit concerts. The fund will not fund alcohol, salaries (i.e. paying students to do something), guest speakers, car rental fees (but we do fund gas reimbursements and you can borrow a DOS van), and we cap the amount of money that students can use weekly for food per meeting.
