Student Government of Seattle University


  •  Budget Fact

    Welcome to the Appropriations webpage and thank you for your interest in the Appropriations process!

    Every year, SGSU sets aside a large portion of its budget for the student clubs and programs that need financial support in order to reach their on and off-campus goals. SGSU is happy to help fund the many great student events and programs that occur every year. Although we do not have the resources to fully fund every request we get, we work hard to provide as much support as possible.  

    The appropriations process has been specially-tailored with you and your group in mind. The required form is informative and easy to fill-out, and the process itself is simple. As long as deadlines are met (which are noted on the form itself) and the requirements met for the presentation, your request will be considered. In considering all club requests, SGSU strives to be as objective and impartial as possible in the allocation of funds.

    In order to achieve new levels of transparency with the clubs requesting money from SGSU, I have included below our total appropriations budget for the 2014-2015 school year, along with the divided amounts that have been set for each meeting. These numbers are the amount of SGSU's total budget that we have allotted for that specific meeting. Unfortunately, unless under highly unusual circumstance, the appropriations committee is not able to grant more than the allotted amount for each meeting. Please keep these numbers in mind as your club moves through the appropriations process, and again, know that our resources are limited, but we will do the best we can to meet all requests fully.
