Funding your Student Organization

Everyday links

The College of Arts Sciences and Engineering has partnered with USEED to create USEED@Rochester a powerful tool for fueling initiatives through crowd-sourced philanthropic giving aka “crowdfunding”.

This is the official way to online fundraise for your organization. Using USEED@Rochester gives you and your financial supports tax deduction credit (to the extend allowed by the law) and banking straight to your organization’s account. The support USEED provides for your crowdfunding project is great. If your organization is interested visit the USEED@Rochester page and Apply. More about this will be shared at the Sessions on Developing your Student Organization.

If you have any initial questions you can email Stacey Fisher.

These are the tools you’ll be using each week to run your student organization and its finances.

Business Managers can obtain their organization’s account balances by contacting their accountant via email or by attending regular office hours. For updated account balances, please check your monthly reports, found in your individual mailboxes. In addition, the “Ledger Form” is available under the sidebar Important Documents on the SAAC website, through which Business Managers can easily track their group’s finances independently.
