Fundraising Policy


All fundraisers must comply with University, state and local ordinances and laws. Student organizations may choose to fundraise for charitable causes or to help with the costs of their organization. When conducting a fundraiser for a charitable cause, we encourage student organizations to report their donations to the Assistant Director of Leadership and Service.

Games of Chance, Raffles, Casino Nights

All fundraisers must comply with University, state and local ordinances and laws. Due to the number of legal, tax and operational issues associated with games of chance, raffles and casino nights, student organizations are not permitted to sponsor them in order to raise funds.

Bradley Merchandise – T-shirt, Mugs, etc.

Only an approved vendor may print an item with the Bradley University logo, “Bradley.” A list of local approved vendors is available in Student Activities.


Fundraisers associated with the sale or consumption of alcohol are prohibited.

Date Auctions

Date auctions are not permitted. Bradley University values all individuals and as such does not allow the sale of people or people for service.

Canning and Fund Collections

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. Request for fundraising events that have an overnight component must schedule an appointment with the Director Student Activities no less than two weeks prior to the event. Advertisement of fundraising activities must comply with the Posting Policy.


Students who violate University policy associated with fundraising may be subject to University conduct sanctions
