Although ASB organizations may receive some donations, the primary revenue source for student organizations is fundraising events and as such, fundraising events are highly regulated activities. As a general rule of thumb, fundraising events should contribute to the educational experience and should not conflict with the school’s educational program. Students should participate and make contributions to fundraising events voluntarily. They cannot be required to participate in fundraising events, and cannot be excluded from an activity funded by ASB funds because they did not participate in raising funds. In addition, fundraising proceeds cannot be attributed to specific students based on what they raised. Any funds are raised to benefit the entire club or student group, not individual students.
Fundraisers that Are Allowed:
Athletic Events, Concession sales, Entertainment, Advertising, Publications, Student stores, Cultural events/international fairs, Limited food and beverage sales, Car washes, Book fairs, Dances, Merchandise sales, Scholarships and trusts , Sale of surplus items, etc.
Fundraisers that Are Not Allowed:

A fundraiser request form must be submitted and approved prior to any fundraising activities by any club.
This form follows the same process as the PO. Please ensure that all sales have a fundraiser request form. If you sell things like T-Shirts all year please fill out a form that spans the entire fiscal year so you can sell T-Shirts whenever you want. A new fundraiser request form must be filled out for every fundraiser every year.
