things we keep in mind
Things We Keep in Mind
  • Campus involvement
  • Collaboration with other student groups
  • Large, campus-wide events
  • Previous expenditure history
  • Detailed Budget
    • Expenses – include relevant quotes, consider ways to reuse previously-purchased items
    • Revenue – consider admission/membership fee, other funding sources
  • General Philosophy
    • Residential/religious/departmental groups should work with relevant faculty/staff for general expenses
  • Well-Conceived Expense
    • Openness – How will the event be welcoming to non-members, people who might not regularly attend? Can other students/groups use the item later?
    • Purpose – How well does the expense advance the goals of your organization?
    • Description – should be SHORT and concise
creating a budget
Creating a Budget
  • Include all itemized costs and revenues
    • Please research costs, do not simply guess
