Funding Options

Co-sponsorship fund programs may be available through co-sponsoring activities with other student organizations. Be clear about the financial responsibilities of each organization. Some questions to consider include: How will the costs be divided? Is it a SPUSA event "with" co-sponsors? Will each group have equal representation and billing? The student affairs office may be able to give you ideas for groups to contact.

Membership dues are another way to raise money. SPUSA currently has no rules prohibiting membership dues. If you are seriously considering dues, contact the national office for advice.
