FUND RAISING

Non-student Organizations and Individuals
Requests by non-student organizations and individual students to raise funds on-campus on behalf of a registered non-profit organization should be directed to the director of the Office of Student Engagement in the form of a written proposal. Proposals should include the purpose of the fundraising activity, the name and location of the non-profit agency, the date, time and proposed location of the fundraiser.

Students and Student Organizations
Students or student organizations raising funds on behalf of an academic department, college office or athletic team should contact the Office of Student Engagement regarding fundraising policies and space reservations after they have received written permission from their department or office.

ENTREPRENEURIAL ACTIVITIES

Any student who plans an entrepreneurial venture to raise funds for personal gain on campus must submit a project proposal, business plan, copies of proper certifications and/or licenses and their Risk Management Agreement to the Office of Student Engagement for consideration. Once approved, the student entrepreneur will be treated as an outside vendor and be charged a reduced vendor fee. Please contact the Administrative Coordinator at ext. 2639 regarding the reduced student entrepreneurial fee.

Student entrepreneurs are encouraged to contact the Center for Women & Financial Independence (WFI) for assistance with developing a business plan and various logistics of owning and operating a business. WFI administers several funds designed to support students with advancing existing businesses, business ideas or product implementation. Request for funding applications can be found on the Entrepreneurship page of WFI website. Please contact Kate Hammond, associate director of the Center for Women and Financial Independence or Susannah Howe, Design Clinic director in engineering to discuss funding and resource options.
