Fundraising Policy

Student Organizations must register all fundraising activities with the Student Activities Office at least one (1) week prior to the scheduled activity. Fundraisers include all activities where there is a collection of funds, regardless of whether the money is donated to a charity or is deposited in the sponsoring organization's account. Activities include, but are not limited to penny voting, merchandise sales, credit card applications, bake sales, race registrations, etc.

All fundraisers must comply with University, state and local ordinances and laws. Fundraisers associated with the sale or consumption of alcohol are prohibited. Due to the number of legal, tax and operational issues associated with raffles and casino nights, student organizations are not permitted to sponsor them in order to raise funds. The act of canning or collecting of funds at the intersection of Main and University will not be approved for safety reasons, per the request of the City of Peoria. Fundraising events that have an overnight component must schedule an appointment with the Director Student Activities no less then two weeks prior to the event. 

Advertisement of fundraising activities must comply with the Posting Policy.
