Funds Allotment Council (FAC)

The Funds Allotment Council is responsible for granting money to both student organizations and inter-collegiate athletic organizations. It is an independent council of Student Government that is responsible for granting money to student organizations that wish to host events on campus. The Council’s goal is to fund many diverse events on campus that will draw a large number of students.
Money is granted to organizations that show a significant amount of planning and a high probability of putting on a successful event. The event must be on campus, open to all students, and cannot be used as a fundraiser.[/expand]
