Student Government Funding

Registered Student Organizations seeking funding for any items, services, or special events can request funding from Student Government (SG).

Student Government Funding is not mandatory for any Registered Student Organization, but if an RSO would like to receive funding they must comply with the SG Title VIII: Finance Code and Provisionary Language, and Title XI: The Executive Agency Statute of the SG Constitution & Statutes.

Please remember that under no circumstances may the University's tax-exempt number be used by an RSO, student organization, or club. To apply for your organization to become tax-exempt, please contact the local IRS offices.


*** Please note that these numbers may not be fully up to date. For more information, please contact the respected chair of the committee.

RSO Fundraising

RSOs can also fundraiser to gain funding for their organization. This can be in the form of accepting donations, asking for sponsorships, partnering with local businesses, or selling items. Recognition by the University does not imply tax-exempt status and under no circumstances may the University's tax-exempt status and/or tax-exempt number be used by an RSO.
