Description:

SSMU offers a variety of funding opportunities for student groups. All of the following funds, allocated by the Funding Committee, are available to Full Status Clubs. Interim Status Clubs are eligible for every fund but the Club Fund. Club Fund: The Club Fund aims to provide funding for long term club activities throughout the semester, instead of on a per-event basis. Only Full Status Clubs are eligible to apply to this fund. Clubs must include events and their corresponding budgets for the semester they are applying in their application. Campus Life Fund: The Campus Life Fund, available to both Interim and Full Status Clubs, funds student groups on a per-event basis. Clubs can apply to this fund for assistance funding a specific project, production, event, conference, or publication. Only on-campus events that contribute to the betterment of student life will be considered. Ambassador Fund: The Ambassador Fund is a funding source for groups that are hosting or participating in academic conferences. Please note that the Ambassador Fund will not support the funding of travel to a conference for an individual student. Green Fund: The Green Fund funds students groups who are taking on sustainable initiatives on campus. The fund contributes to reduce the environmental impact of club events. The Green Fund can also subsidize the cost difference between biodegradable materials and the regular materials that the club would otherwise buy. To receive funding from this fund, the club must demonstrate a commitment to one of SSMU's sustainability goals. Space Fund: The Space Fund supports physical improvements in the Shatner Building and on campus, including renovations and furniture replacement. Charity Fund: The Charity Fund supports projects and initiatives that foster community building between McGill and external communities or organizations. The Funding Committee favours applications that fund projects contributing to the achievement of equal opportunity, promote inclusion, strive for the avoidance of deprivation, and foster community building. Please note that the Charity Fund is intended to provide funding for clubs to host charity events that also benefit student life while acting as a fundraiser, not just to provide money for clubs to donate directly to charities. Equity Fund: The Equity Fund supports initiatives that make observable or measurable differences in the representation of historically or currently disadvantaged groups. Projects that promote accessibility, inclusivity and non-discrimination are most appropriate for the Equity Fund. Please note SSMU funding will not subsidize food and drink for events. When completing a funding application, ensure that your application is clear and provides thorough explanations. Explain your clubs goals and your mandate and explain how your activities benefit the SSMU community. Be sure to provide budgets with specific notes for different expenses and revenue to aid the Funding Committee in making their decision. Misrepresenting your operating budget or inflating numbers is easily identifiable by the funding committee (keep in mind that SSMU has access to your bank statements and current account balance) and will result in the denial of funding. When granting funding to student groups, the Funding Committee allocates funds based on the club's audit score, the quality of their events, the expected benefit to students of the events, the club's fundraising capabilities, the club members, and the club's history with funding and finances. For questions or concerns about club funding, contact the Funding Coordinator at fundcom@ssmu.mcgill.ca.
