Fundraising Policy and Procedures

The university has established a Fundraising Policy for all departments.  From dorm events to student trips the policy applies to all fundraising efforts. With a growing campus, there are multiple fundraising efforts being made.  WJU wants to be sure that there is a campus-wide notification of fundraising for a variety of reasons, including: phone calls received, press releases, accounting and donor interest.

Take a moment to review the Fundraising Procedures which provides step by step instructions for your fundraising campaign, and the Gift Acceptance Policy.

Once you have a general idea of your method for fundraising, complete the Fundraising Form and look for an email response from Development for approval. The turnaround approval time is 5 business days.

Once approval has been granted to receive donations, use the Donation Deposit Form for submittal of all proceeds to the Business Office.
