Raising Funds

Student Organizations can raise funds is a number of ways. You are encouraged to look into funding sources both inside the University and out.

It is important to note that University policies do not allow student organizations to utilize any third-party systems for ecommerce.  This means you cannot collect funds through sites like Paypal, Eventbrite, or Kickstarter, nor can you utilize any credit card transaction apps like Square.

Ticket sales for event can be accommodated through the Logan Box Office.  Work with your advisor and the Financial Operations office to expore any  potential ecommerce options.
