Club Funds and Funding
When you are chartered a club account is automatically setup and your seed money is deposited. These funds are allocated from ASPCC, Cascade’s budget. How you use your funds is up to you, your club members and your club’s advisor (if you are not sure who your advisor is, ask the Clubs and Programs Specialist—they can assist you). Each club is given limited funds and deciding how to spend it can be tricky. Here are some suggestions from former club leaders:
To access your club funds, you’ll need to fill out a request form. This form 11 is available outside the clubs office and should be submitted at least one week before you need to purchase an item. If you require emergency funding for a project, you’ll need to speak directly with the Clubs and Programs Specialist about your options.
Service Project Program
Clubs often find that their startup funds will not cover all the activities they have planned for the year. In order to address this problem, ASPCC has created the Service Project Program. If you and your club members are willing to do some community service at a local non-profit, ASPCC will give you up to $250 for your club. Here’s how the program works:
This may seem like a lot of steps, but the program is relatively straight forward. If you have any questions about the Service Project Program or your club’s budget, don’t hesitate to contact the professional club advising staff.
