Crown Special Events Fund

 

This fund was established by the Crown Family Foundation in 1978 to support CMC students in creating a vibrant and diverse social life. The Crown Fund provides resources to promote student interaction as well as opportunities for intellectual, social, and culturally enriching special events. This fund is to benefit the larger student community where alternate sources of funding may not usually be available.

Requirements / Eligibility: This fund is primarily for seed money for clubs and organizations that want to do something new, unique or big that they couldn't put or foresee in their budgets at the beginning of the year. Funding requests should illustrate how many students can participate, as the fund is intended for larger impact programming. There is a huge emphasis on new initiatives.

Amounts: Up to $750

Annual Deadline: Funds are available throughout the academic school year.

Examples of projects: In Fall 2017, the Crown Special Events Fund provided funding for a halloween event put on by Fitness and Friends, a CMC club. The event brought together student artists, arts and crafts, holiday food, and well installed decorations in the middle of campus for everyone to attend. In Fall 2017, his fund also provided funding for the 2nd annual Benefit Concert hosted by the Mgrublian Center for Human Rights and two other organizations.
