The Student Activity Finance Board, known as SAFB, provides recommendations and coordinates with Student Council on a multitude of finance related issues. However, the membership of SAFB expands beyond student council. The 18 voting members together represent the full range of S&T, from design teams to non-varsity sports. SAFB has three defined purposes:
- To provide to the Student Council a recommendation of student activity fees and their distribution to recognized student organizations.
- To financially review recognized student organizations at its own discretion or at the request of Student Council Executive Board and Student Life
- To manage the reallocation of Student Council approved External Funding Committee funds within specific organizations budget
The External Funding Contributions process appropriates out funds generated from the Student Activity Fee to student organizations on campus. Every account accepts applications within the first four weeks of the fall semester. EFC funds can, generally, only cover up to 50% of an organization's expenses. SAFB provides a recommendation to student council, who approves the final allocations.
We welcome applications from student organizations to the EFC accounts. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to the Director of External Funding Contributions for more information.
Contact the Director of Student Funding (DSF) to learn more about the process, and if you are interested in creating a new fee within the Student Activity Fee.
