Financial Resources

While it is primarily the student leaders’ responsibility to fill out ORG budgets to request funding and secure proper authorization for fundraising, it is helpful if advisors are able to act as guides to help navigate the process. Below, you will find a brief overview of the funding and fundraising policies. You can find a full description of the ORG finance policies in the Guidelines for Recognized Student Organizations.

Who approves funding?

The Student Organization Allocation Committee (SOAC) is a viewpoint neutral student group responsible for the allocation of funds to recognized student organizations. This committee is comprised of 10 students who are enrolled at the University of Missouri, with partial representation from the Missouri Students Association (MSA) and the Graduate Professional Council (GPC).

Types of Budgets

Travel Funding
Honorarium Funding
General Expense Funding

Fundraising

Fundraising is any income-producing activity, whether or not you make a profit. It can be a great option to provide funding for your student organization.

Fundraising Guidelines:

  • Organizations must submit a Fundraising Request Form 2 weeks prior to the event. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of space reservation.
  • Fundraisers must abide by all M-Book and Organization Resource Group Policies.
