Funding Process

What is the Budget and Finance Committee (B&F)?

The Budget and Finance Committee is a sub-committee of the ASUH-Leeward CC Student Government.  This committee focuses on properly allocating funding to RISOs and campus departments in co-sponsoring their events/programs.

Funding:

  • $7600/semester will be allocated to the B&F Committee to distribute to the RISOs and departments. (So there is more opportunities for funding in the beginning of each semester)
  • Maximum of $500/semester can be requested by a RISO
  • Maximum of $300/event with a total maximum of $1200/semester can be requested by campus departments
  • Submit 1 signed copy to the Student Life Office: Must be filled out through the website, typed, and printed out at least 45 days before the event.

Requirements:

  • Requests must be submitted at least 45 days prior to event date
  • A representative from the organization  must attend the B&F meeting and can only be the Advisor, Division Chair, or the requestor
  • B&F will inform the organization within 2 weeks of submission date if their request or portion of their requests has been approved or denied
  • The Final Budget Form, Reimbursement/Purchase Order Form, and event flyer must be submitted 30 days prior to the event
  • All receipts must be submitted 3 days after the event date to the Student Life Office

B&F uses the following criteria in determining where funds are to be allocated:
