Fundraising Resources

  • A privilege of being a recognized club is being able to apply for various funding sources. The main funding sources for clubs is through SGSU Appropriations and Fundraising. More information can be found at the sub-menu to the left.

    Selling Tickets at the CAC (Campus Assistance Center)

    If your club is having an event and you would like to sell tickets for your event through the CAC, please fill out a Ticket Sales Contract for the CAC 5 days before the selling start date. That form can be found here: CAC Ticket Sales


    Clubs are encouraged to use creativity to fundraise for their clubs to supplement money they're able to procure from SGSU or other University departments/organizations.  

    Previous fundraisers by clubs include:

    • Bake sales
    • Silent Auctions
    • Requesting donations from off-campus companies
    • Partnerships with companies 

     Clubs and Tax Exempt Status

    Clubs are no longer permitted, due to Federal tax laws, to use the University's tax exempt status.  Therefore, University Advancement will no longer process gifts to clubs.  

    Clubs are permitted to fundraise, however, donors will not be able to use their donation, monetary or otherwise, as a tax write off on their personal or business tax unless given directly to a non-profit organization.  For example, if a club works with the United Way, Lifelong AIDS Alliance, or some other non-profit and the money raised goes directly to that organization, not to the club, then the donor can work with the non-profit for tax exemption.  

    Clubs interested in pursuing a non-profit status should contact Bernie Liang, Director, Center for Student Involvement, for information on EIN and becoming a non-profit entity.
