There are a number of ways in which campus groups can fund their activities:
Collecting membership fees enables a Campus Group to expand the offerings available to members without charging fees for each activity. The organization’s executive usually determines the exact amount of the fee, although it rarely exceeds $10.00.
Organizations can offer food and other materials (clothing, arts and crafts, etc.) for sale or hold events with an admission fee throughout the year.
Campus Groups can approach external organizations for monetary or product sponsorship. Almost all sponsors will expect some form of return on their investment from your organization.
The SCSU supports the advancement of recognized student organizations on campus and sets aside approximately $50,000 annually to assist groups with costs arising from events and activities.
One of the ways in which Hart House supports great student-led programming on the UTSC campus is through the Good Ideas Fund (GIF).
