Things to think about prioritizing
Things to think about: Prioritizing

  • 5 Items in each category are labeled crucial to club success

    • Essential to the club’s mission, purpose or function

    • Without these the club would cease to function

  • Other Less crucial things:

    • Open to as many things as possible, but keep in mind if something is not allocated for or partially allocated that item cannot be increased through supplemental funding, so stay reasonable and accurate

Things to think about items that should not be included

  • Things the budget will not pay for include:

    • Food, unless part of the mission of the club. i.e. Food salvage

    • Student wages

    • Gas, but you are welcome to apply for gas supplemental

    • Gifts, Prizes, rewards or donations

    • Professional Certifications

Tips from those who have done it
Tips from those who have done it

  • “I would really recommend having future leaders and current leaders sit down to do the budget together so it becomes more familiar and they can model it in a similar way the following years.”

    -Erika Perry, Gymnastics

  • “Be precise with calculating costs and don't exaggerate the amounts that you need because you think SGA will give you less than you request. Know that SGA will never give you as much as you request. But, if you have substantial reasons, SGA should give you enough.”

    -Jared Necamp, Freeskiing

“Discuss your budget with the perspective leaders for next year to make sure it includes what they want, and be realistic about your clubs goals and abilities to execute events”

-Eliza Kelsten, Free2Be
