All Student Organizations must sign a "Student Organization Fund-Raising Project Approval Form" in order to conduct any type of fund-raising projects on University Grounds.
Fund-raising projects conducted within or near an academic facility must be approved in writing by the respective school dean, academic department head or their designates. All other fund-raising projects on Grounds by such organizations must be approved by the Dean of Students or his designate, except that in the case of Intramural or Athletic Department facilities, approval of the Director of Athletics or his designate must be first obtained. All Student Organization fund-raising projects must be conducted within the specific area designated as part of the approval process. Deans or department heads may prohibit the conduct of fund-raising projects within or around their respective facilities or limit the projects to activities related to the program of the specific school or department. Deans and department heads responsible for academic facilities should maintain a record of approved and rejected projects and provide a report periodically to the Dean of Students summarizing the fund-raising projects conducted within their facilities, as well as those projects that were rejected during the period. The Dean of Students will periodically initiate a request for the report and file a summary report at least annually to the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Vice President for Business and Finance.
For the purpose of this Policy, fund-raising projects are defined as all activities by Student Organizations which involve the collection of money from persons who may or may not be members of the sponsoring organizations. The collection of dues or membership fees from the members of a Student Organization is not considered a fund-raising project for the purpose of this Policy. Fund-raising projects include the selling of goods, printed materials, student-provided services; the selling of tickets and/or charging admission to public activities or events; and the soliciting of voluntary contributions, which in total are herein defined as "goods and/or services." Fund-raising projects must be of limited duration and not carried out as an ongoing activity. Approval of the sale of goods and/or services will be based, in part, on whether such goods and/or services are available at official University outlets and whether such goods and/or services are priced fairly. All Student Organizations' fund-raising projects held on Grounds must not directly benefit financially the individual officers and/or members and must be conducted in compliance with University policies and regulations.
The delivery of goods and/or services to single-student residence houses may not be made directly to student rooms and are subject to University regulations. No permission will be granted for sales of goods and/or services on the upper Lawn or in the Gardens of the historic Grounds area. Approved fund-raising projects will be restricted to those areas specifically authorized for each specific project.
