Club Appropriations

Welcome to the Club Appropriations information page! The Student Government Association budget is responsible for the funding of many of Loyola’s clubs and organizations. As a club president, you can find the information on funding and the appropriations process for requesting funds, which is located below.

Before requesting funds, take a look at the Finance Committee By-Laws to familiarize yourself and club with the process. Additionally, one executive club member must attend either the Club Funding Workshop at the beginning of the year. If you do not attend, you must arrange for a meeting our Director of Clubs and Activities, Aubrey Leas, who will be happy to present the information to you so that you may begin requesting funds from SGA.

In addition to filling out the online form below, each request needs to be in the form of a written proposal containing the following. You must use this Appropriations Request Form for your proposal. This form also contains the event sustainability form which must be completed.

  1. A detailed description of the program or event, including student population served, the purpose of the event (including how it will fit with the mission of the University) anticipated attendance, and a brief outline of the qualifications of the proposed speaker (if applicable).

  2. A tentative itinerary (if applicable).

  3. Tentative dates and times and locations for the proposed program/event.

  4. A complete budget for the event(itemized table of expenses).

  5. The amount of the request and a brief description of the ways in which the funds will be used.

  6. In general, clubs requesting money should be looking to multiple sources such a personal contributions, other funding organizations (i.e. Education for Life), and fundraising efforts.

  7. The Sustainability Form (which is attached in the Sample Proposal)

Both forms in the proposal must be completed in their entirety to be considered for appropriations.

The SGA Senate Finance Committee meets every Tuesday night at 7:00pm.
