Fund raising as it pertains to student organizations is defined as the seeking of funds or support by a student group from sources other than its members, including the procurement of supplies and other forms of support; the selling or distribution of items, materials, products, or services; and the sponsorship of events where admission is charged.

  1. Only official registered student organizations or clubs of DeKalb College will be authorized to conduct fund raising projects.
  2. All student organization or club fund raising project proposals must be submitted to the Office of Student Activities for approval by the Director at least two (2) weeks prior to the proposed event.
  3. Fund Raising Project Request Forms may be obtained from the Office of Student Activities.
  4. Projects may not in any way interfere with normal academic programs or functions.
  5. The proposed fund raising project should not interfere with existing College-operated services, contracts, or College Development (fund raising) activities. Projects which would present extended competition with products or services that are available through an existing College-operated contract with a commercial vendor will not be approved.
  6. Use of campus mail service is prohibited.
  7. Fund raising is not permitted in offices, classrooms, corridors or food facilities. Fund raising on campus may be conducted only in areas approved by the Director of Student Activities.

Written acknowledgment of this fact must be made by the student organization or club president on a Fund Raising Project Request Form. All financial expenditures and liability necessary for any project must be underwritten as a condition of approval of each project.
