Fundraising

All sport clubs are strongly encouraged to fundraise, as the Campus Recreation budget is only intended to cover part of club expenses each academic year.
What types of events count as fundraisers?

Hosting competitions/tournaments/clinics/events that charge entry fees, profit shares, letter writing campaigns, bake sales, etc.

What paperwork should a club submit for a fundraiser?

Step 1. Your Sport Club is required to email the Sport Club Assistant Director at rsclub@wm.edu at the planning stage of your fundraiser, explaining your desired fundraiser activity and your vehicle for receiving revenues.

Notice: Sport Clubs are not permitted to solicit donations to off campus checking accounts, or through any online crowdfunding means other than www.giving.wm.edu.  

Step 2. At least 7 business days or more before your event, submit a Form A (Event Registration) by email to rsclub@wm.edu in order to register your fundraiser with the Sport Club Office. 

Does campus recreation provide clubs any resources to help with fundraising?

Every semester there is a Sport Club Leadership Series that includes a fundraising module. The Student Leadership Development Office provides a list of fundraising policies and procedures on their website. Importantly, you may email the Sport Club Assistant Director at rsclub@wm.edu anytime to ask for a consultation.
