Fund Your Organization

The Club Allocation Budget (CAB) Committee’s mission is to support recognized CSUSB student organizational activities that will directly enhance on-campus life, and allow students to develop leadership and personal skills. Student organizations are encouraged to request grant funding for the following services:

  • On-Campus Events and Programs
  • Organization Fundraisers or Philanthropy Events
  • Conference Registration Fees
  • Artist/Speaker Fees
  • Advertising
  • Food/Beverages

Representatives of all organizations receiving funds through CAB are required to attend a mandatory workshop each year explaining CAB procedures and prior to submitting a request. Organizations will be ineligible for CAB funding until this requirement is met.

Student Organizations requesting funds must show financial investment in the event for which they are requesting CAB funding. New Organizations will have one (1) year from the date they were chartered with OSE to establish financial stability before meeting this requirement. It is important for organizations to note that receiving CAB funds is a privilege and not a right, and funds will be considered for distribution on a first-come, first-served basis. The CAB Committee is entrusted with the responsibility for ensuring that CAB funds are allocated wisely and as fairly as possible. Sponsored Student Organizations (SSO) and University Sponsored Organizations (USO) are not eligible for CAB funding through Associated Students, Inc.

Fundraising by On-Campus Organizations:

Fundraising events are activities where organizations receive monies (directly or indirectly) in exchange for merchandise, service, or entertainment. An exception to this policy would be when organizations are conducting small inconsequential fundraising activities, e.g., a sorority selling T-shirts.

Recognized student, faculty, and on-campus organizations may raise funds on-campus either through direct solicitation or by sponsoring revenue-producing activities in accordance with the following:

  • The appropriate University officials or designees must approve the fundraising activity in advance on the basis of their conformity to the general principles of this policy and to all applicable federal, state, and local laws. The viewpoint of the group sponsoring the activity and the content of any materials to be distributed shall not be considered in the decision to grant or deny permission. Student groups must receive prior approval from Student Engagement at (909) 537-5234. Faculty/staff must receive prior approval from the Office of the Vice President for Advancement at (909) 537-5004.
  • The fundraising activity must be consistent with the stated purpose of the organization.
  • The net proceeds from the fundraising activity must be used for the stated purpose and are in some direct relation to the educational, research or service missions of the University, or donated to a charitable organization.

Raffles

“Raffles” and “lotteries” are illegal in the State of California (Penal Code 335A). However, organizations may “sell” chances on a prize to raise funds by adhering to the following guidelines:

  • Never print the word “Raffle” on the face of your ticket or advertisement. Alternative wording may be: “Fundraising event,” “Prize Give-away,” or “Opportunity to Win.”
  • You must give the buyer something besides the ticket in exchange for their donation. Example: A pizza coupon printed on the back of the ticket. Many pizza restaurants will actually print the tickets for you in exchange for the publicity.
  • You are obligated to give one ticket to anyone requesting one whether or not they give you a donation.
  • Tickets and ticket stubs must be individually numbered and you must keep an account of every ticket you print. Tickets can be numbered through CSUSB Printing Services.
  • The following must appear on every ticket:
    •   The name of your organization (not an acronym)
    •   Date, time, and location of the drawing
    •   “No purchase necessary”
    •   “Winner need not be present”
    •   “Suggested Donation” next to the ticket price
    •   “Proceeds benefit...”
