Opportunities to Request Funding 
STUDENT ORGANIZATION FUNDING REQUEST

Registered Student Organizations that are considered in good standing with the Office of Student Activities are eligible to apply for funding to support their operations. All funding requests are reviewed by the Finance Council of the Student Government Association and funds from approved applications are disseminated by the Office of Student Activities. While these funds are meant to support student organizations, they are not meant to support larger events which may be better served by other grants such as the Community Chest or the McMichael Fund.

COMMUNITY CHEST FUNDING APPLICATION

The purpose of the Community Chest Fund is to provide opportunities for registered student organizations at Southwestern University to offer campus-wide programs. The Community Chest encourages SU students to “think big” by supporting programs that cannot be executed with the money available from the fees and allocation process alone. This fund is intended to support events that are engaging, entertaining, interactive and inclusive.

COMMUNITY CHEST FUND: POST-EVENT EVALUATION

A post event evaluation form must be submitted within 30 days following any Community Chest Funded event.
