Off Campus Fundraising and Solicitation
Soliciting donations of any kind from any individual or organization off campus MUST be approved by the club advisor and the Club and Programs Specialist. The Off Campus fundraising Request (form #7) MUST be completed and forwarded for the appropriate review and approval signatures.
Solicitation of donations off campus is a very lucrative and very special circumstance. The reason for so many reviews and the required approval is because often PCC is officially working with an off campus company or organization requesting donations to the college. If such an off campus organization is approached by many different "PCC groups" (i.e. student groups, academic departments, etc.) for donations, it is possible for them to become offended and feel like they are being taken advantage of, resulting in their withdrawing their multi-thousand dollar donation offer. So, to avoid this possibility, all off campus solicitation requests must follow the procedures outlined above and in the off campus solicitation request form. Work with the Club and Programs Specialist for assistance in completing this form.
