Fundraising by Employees & Students

It is the responsibility of the Foundation Office to coordinate fundraising programs, events and solicitation for all funds (over $100) from individuals, private foundations, businesses, corporations and organizations. This would include, but not be limited to, gifts of cash, equipment/materials, services, advertising and sponsorships. This ensures that the college is coordinated in its approach to funding sources.

Do's and don'ts

No employee or student has the right to commit Delta College to support volunteer or fundraising activities, without the knowledge and consent of the college. When fundraising, employee or student groups have the obligation to know and follow all established policies and procedures of the college, without exception. This includes following existing local, state and federal laws, ordinances and statues pertaining to fundraising.

Faculty and staff may enlist support from Foundation staff when seeking outside support. A person's supervisor, dean, and/or vice president should endorse the idea before the project is forwarded for consideration.

After having a conversation with the appropriate supervisor and dean, faculty and staff must complete the Delta College Employee Request to Fundraise form, which is then submitted to the Foundation Office for review. This ensures that any conflicts in current solicitations can be identified and avoided, and requires up to five business days for review and response.

Student Requests to Fundraise

Many student groups also want to fundraise to be able to support their activities.  Although the process must still be approved by the Foundation Office if the group is seeking external support, the Student Activities team must be approached first to start the process.

To be able to find out further information, please access the Delta College Student Request to Fundraise form on the Student Clubs and Organizations page and following the instructions contained on the document.
