Student Handbook

Fundraising

No student or group may solicit funds or items for its own use or for any community or charitable purpose without permission of the Vice President for Student Life and Leadership Engagement and the Vice President for External Affairs. The Office of Student Life will be happy to assist students in obtaining permission to raise funds for their use or a charitable purpose. Monies raised must be deposited in campus accounts immediately after the fundraiser, and proof of deposit will be required. 

The Office of Student Activities and Student Center Operations and the Student Government Association encourage all student organizations to actively raise funds for their organization’s use. In order to assure that any fundraising activities are not considered suspect with regard to prize distribution or financial misappropriations, all student organizations are required to adhere to these fundraising guidelines. 

  1. All student organizations interested in raising funds via sales or contests must complete an on-line Request for Student Club/Organization Activity on the Office of Student Activities portal page to gain official approval and table/building space. 
  2. You will be contacted by the Office of Student Activities and Student Center Operations to review plans and discuss expenses. Raffles require a license from the Borough of West Long Branch. The Office of Student Activities can assist you with the application. Applications may take up to eight weeks to approve. 
  3. Once the fundraiser takes place, the organization must inform the Office of Student Activities as to who won the contest or raffle and/or to report revenue earned from the fundraiser. This information is for the Office of Student Activities’ records only. Student organizations will not be able to continue fundraising events until this information is provided. Also, failure to report fundraiser amounts may result in denial of future funding for organization projects. 
  4. No student group may solicit funds or items from off-campus sources for its own use or a charitable purpose without permission from the Vice President for Student Life and Leadership Engagement and the Vice President for External Affairs. The Office of Student Activities will be happy to assist students in obtaining permission to raise funds for their use or a charitable purpose.
