Raising Funds for your Organization

Consultation with the Department of Student Life staff in the early planning stages of fund raising activities can save time and effort and will ensure compliance with appropriate institutional rules and regulations. The Assistant Director for Student Involvement or his/her designee are available to provide advice on planning strategies and the applicability of university regulations.

Things to Consider Regarding Fundraising

• Fundraisers and solicitation can be conducted in the Student Center and in approved areas by student organizations. • The use of Kennesaw State University trademarks and logos by RSOs or third party organizations for the purpose of fundraising is prohibited. • All funds collected on campus must be documented. Please submit a brief report to The Department of Student Life outlining how much money you raised and to whom the money was donated. • Any distribution of food or beverages, including fund raising projects that involve food items, requires special permits through the Department of Student Life and appropriate Environmental Health & Safety professionals. • Fund raisers may not be conducted for private gain of individuals or for-profit business. • All fund raising activities, and especially planned sales of t-shirts, mugs, caps, or any items that use the name of Kennesaw State University or any of its trademark symbols, are prohibited.

Your Organization Advisor

The Department of Student Life requires student organization to have a minimum of one (1) full time faculty or administrative staff advisor before charter or re-registration status is granted. Advisors serve in a volunteer capacity and may seek out student organizations to advise or accept personal invitations by established RSOs on campus.

The Role of the Advisor

An advisor should work with the organization officers and members to ensure smooth operation of the organization. An advisor can be your biggest advocate, and can also help solve challenges and issues that may arise within the group. The relationship between an advisor and an organization will vary from year to year and individual to individual. However, the student/advisor relationship can be crucial to the success of the organization. It is important that the advisor and the organization communicate their expectations to each other. The advisor should be very clear about the things she or he will do, and the things she or he will not do. Of course, the expectations will vary according to the needs of the organization and the advisor. REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATION MANUAL 2012-2013| 17
