SAF Requests

General Information

All clubs on campus have two accounts: cash accounts and budget accounts. The cash account is the "savings account" of the club and is where money raised
through fundraising is held. The budget account is where funds go when they are allocated by the Finance Board; each organization has a budget index number
that corresponds to the budget line items and budget requests submitted by organizations.

Budget requests come out of the SAF Fund, which is a pool of money that is paid into by all undergraduate students with the purpose of being allocated out to
all the student organizations. From the fund, organizations are able to make 4 budget requests per fiscal year. This is all done through the online platform
OrgSync.

Budget requests are granted based on the principles and guidelines outlined in the SAF Manual. All budget requests should adhere to the policies outlined in the
Manual, and all groups should read this document in its entirety to understand the rules and procedures of SAF budget requests. In order to be eligible for funding for budget requests, student organizations must have a member of their executive board attend the in-person Finance Board

Workshops or complete the online Finance Board Webinar to demonstrate an understanding of the SAF Manual.

Finance Board Workshops:

Student groups may either complete the webinar or attend an in-person workshop. The time and location for these workshops will be posted as soon as
they are available.

Fall 2018: TBD
Spring 2019: TBD

Finance Board Webinar

The Finance Board Webinar is available on Blackboard. Once on Blackboard, go to the community tab, search “Student Government Association Finance Board”
and join that community. Then in the “documents” section, you will see the link for the Finance Board Webinar. Please complete the Finance Board Webinar
before your specific deadlines and please email the Finance Board a confirmation of a passing score for our records.
