Club Finance Council (CFC) is an ASUCD and Pepsi-funded program that provides grants to help pay for educational programs, guest speakers, conferences, performances, cultural shows, publications and other events that enrich campus life. Registered undergraduate student organizations in good standing with the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) are eligible to apply for funding.

Grant applications will now be reviewed weeks 2 – 7 each quarter. A CFC board member will review your application with you to learn more about your event/activity/publication and provide you with an opportunity to share more details. All CFC Grant Intakes take place in Memorial Union 442.

Schedule a CFC Grant Application Review Session to learn more about CFC, have a CFC Board Member provide suggestions for your application, and get answers to any questions you have before you turn in your grant. CFC review sessions are held in both Memorial Union 442 and in the lobby of the Student Community Center.

The CFC Board consists of 13 dedicated undergraduate students who help support student organizations by allocating funding to their events, programs, and publications. Members gain experience in budget review, grant allocation, leadership, and group dynamics. The CFC Board is selected during Winter quarter each year to serve during the following year through a collaborative interview process with the Center for Student Involvement and ASUCD. 

 

COVID-19 Update

Until further notice to comply with CA State and Yolo County orders connected to Covid-19, CFC Grants will only be reviewed for the following areas:

Online Events – Events open to all undergraduate students hosted online.

Publications – Journals or magazines that can be produced while social distancing.

Fall Quarter Events Prior to October 30th, 2020 – This requires the RSO to re-register for the 2020-2021 school year after May 1st.

As always CFC only funds one-time-use items since funding is event-specific. Examples of items that may be requested for Spring 2020 events include the following:

  • Speaking Fees
  • Funding for performers
  • Printing costs (publications, advertising, programs)
  • Movie licensing fees

Fall 2020 events costs that may be considered would be those reviewed in the online orientation completed prior to the application.  As a reminder, events related to membership-induction functions or internal club functions are not eligible such as general club flyers, training materials, operational costs, organization retreats, member-only events, etc.

In addition, CFC has no obligation to fund any group on a regular, annual, or continuing basis.
