Apply for funding

Student Activities Funding Board

The Student Activities Funding Board (SAFB) is a seven student board that allocates funds to student organizations for events and programs to enhance student activities and campus life. Apply for funds to help enhance campus life by putting on events, activities, and programs!

The funding proposal must emphasize the impact the event will have on campus life-- not all proposals submitted will be approved. The SAFB has limited funding and proposal review is a competitive process.  Therefore, you'll want to present an event proposal that is well designed, thorough, and is focused on student activities and campus life. Because an event has happened annually does not mean it will receive automatic funding approval.

A student organization can apply for funds as far out on the calendar as you wish, but at least six weeks prior to the proposed date of the proposed event (four weeks from the SAFB review—biweekly meetings).  Make sure your proposal form is complete. Incomplete forms may not be considered.

Guidelines, restictions and special preferences

The Dean of Students Office staff is available to help you with any/all needs you have in putting together your event proposal and event.

Important: All events must be free & open to the public.

Theatre and Dance Student Organization Fundraiser Initiative

Theatre and Dance at Wayne has created a zero risk fundraising initiative that involves no upfront cost and rewards student organizations with the opportunity to raise funds while enjoying one of our many performances.

How it works:

  1. Pick up your vouchers from the Theatre and Dance Department.
  2. Sell your vouchers to parents, classmates, co-workers, church members, family, friends etc. at whatever price you choose (Suggested $20-$30).
  3. You will only be billed for vouchers that are redeemed at the Theatre, at $8.00 per voucher.

Your student organization can keep the entire profit from a voucher sale that is never redeemed. If you don't sell any vouchers your organization will not be billed for anything, and the best part is participating doesn't require a deposit or upfront cost whatsoever.
