Attention Club Leaders,
The deadline for the first Fall funding hearing will be Saturday, September 3rd, and the first funding hearing itself will be on Saturday, September 17th. These dates are fast approaching, and it's important that all of you become familiar with the recent changes with club funding!
First off, there is no longer a 'Tier' for Philanthropic events alone. Second, the yearly amount for Tier 2 has been raised from $1,000 to $2,000. Third, clubs requesting funding must be able to show that they have raised funds equal to 25% of their total event cost in order to receive any funding at all (i.e. if the total cost for your event or travel is $1,000, then your club must raise $250 in order to be approved any ASUN money).
Sponsorships and donations are considered valid towards this 25% requirement. Therefore, if you receive any sponsorships or donations for an event or travel, YOU MUST complete a donation, sponsorship, or gift in kind form and turn it in to the ASUN accounting office by the Monday prior to any funding hearing. If you have raised actual money, it must be deposited to your ASUN account by the same deadline.
We will be checking account balances and form submissions prior to every funding hearing, and any requesting club found to not have met it's 25% requirement WILL NOT BE FUNDED!
Below is the most recent copy of our funding policies to this email. I have underlined and made bold the policy that has changed. Please review it thoroughly.
I have also decided to run funding workshops Monday 22nd - Friday 26th. The focus of these workshops will be to help educate officers on the new policy, as well as provide suggestions on how to raise funds. I will be emailing out the time and location of these workshops soon! I highly encourage for as many of your officers to attend a workshops. Please contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
