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:
- Your club members locate a local organization and plan to complete a service project.
- Your club decides how many hours they are willing to spend on the project. If your club completes 30 person hours of work, they qualify for the entire $250. What we by “person hours” is a measure of the amount of work the group does as a whole. For example, if five people work for six hours that equals thirty hours of work: 5 x 6 = 30.
- Once you have decided where you want to work and for how long, contact the Clubs Office for a Service Project Proposition form (#12). Fill it out and have it filed with the office one week before your project date.
- Send one member of your club to the General Council meeting on Mondays at 3:00pm in Terrell Hall 112. They will present the proposal to the Council who must approve it.
- Once you’ve completed an approved project, send a representative back to the General Council to report on the service you did, who was helped and how many members of your club participated.
- Your funds will be transferred into your club account.
