Finance and fundraising Committee
"It’s hard to describe just how incredible this organization is. As a new student, trying to find your place on campus can be one of the scariest things you’ve ever had to do; I think I have truly found my place after joining SAB. This organization has surrounded me with amazing opportunities where every member will push you toward excellence. It’s really a one of a kind experience.”
What is the Finance and Fundraising Committee?
The finance and fundraising committee is absolutely crucial in Student Alumni Board's success. Our largest fundraisers are the Welcome Back Boxes and the Finals Week Survival Kits. These fundraisers are run completely by committee members and are designed to help ease the various stresses that college throws at you. The money that SAB receives is critical in funding every event throughout the year. A lot of time is devoted to these fundraisers, but the majority of this committee's work goes on behind the scenes. The finance department of the committee focuses on ensuring a healthy financial status for the organization and helps in allocating money to certain SAB events. This department handles member dues, fundraiser money, and other various expenses.
The Welcome Back Box Fundraiser takes place at the beginning of fall semester. Much like the Finals Week Survival Kits, the box contents usually include OHIO spirit apparel, stickers, study/health tools, etc.
The Finals Week Survival Kit Fundraiser takes place during finals weeks of fall and spring semesters. The kits are full of items and pick-me-ups to help students get through the last week of the semester.
Excel Workshops are held for members who want to improve their Excel skills, with tips for formatting, creating graphics and charts, and manipulating data in multiple spreadsheets.
Financial Presentations teach members about various financial skills and money management tips.
