Annual Giving and Pipeline Development
2019-20 UC San Diego Parents Fund Application
DEADLINE: Thursday, April 18, 2019
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Please carefully read the following terms and conditions. If these terms and conditions are not met, your application may be disqualified.
Parent and Family Giving enhances the student experience by connecting parents and families to the UC San Diego community through meaningful opportunities for volunteerism, intellectual engagement and philanthropy.
Our students aspire to change the world, and UC San Diego’s priority is to provide them with the resources to accomplish their dreams. Our goal is to ensure all students have the opportunity to enhance their experience during their time here at UC San Diego. The Parents Fund impacts undergraduate students by providing resources to foster a balance of academics, personal growth and extracurricular activities.
These funds are awarded based on need, number of students served, educational benefits derived, and funds available from our generous parent donors to UC San Diego. Funds are allocated by members of the Parent Leadership Council, which is a group of parent volunteers of current undergraduate students.
To be eligible your organization or group must:
1. Be a registered student organization in good standing or a university group which enhances the undergraduate student experience.
2. Meet Associated Students (AS) Student Organization funding guidelines
3. Be a student organization eligible to submit a Triton Activities Planner (TAP) 21-days prior to the event/program or a university group with a department advisor and/or business officer.
4. Be able to complete the online Parents Fund application including submission of budget.
5. You must submit a budget for the 2019-2020 usage for the funds. The budget must include all sources of revenue (actual and potential) as well as all planned expenditures for the event/fund usage. The amount you are requesting needs to be represented in your budget and you will need to clearly indicate how you intend to expend the requested Parents Fund dollars.
Applications will be screened and those meeting the minimum criteria will be presented to the Parent Leadership Council for review. The council will meet in Spring 2019 to determine funding allocations. Once determined, student or university groups and appropriate financial authorities (university business officers) will be notified and funds will be transferred. The funds received must be used within the 2019-20 fiscal year.
Consideration will not be granted to any funding applications involving alcohol.
If your organization or group is awarded funds, you will be required to complete the following steps:
1. Meet any special requirements set by the Parents Leadership Council. (These will be made clear in the emailed award letter to the group contact)
2. Recognize UC San Diego’s Parents Fund in event/program credits in any electronic or printed collateral.
3. Provide up to three (3) tickets, if requested, for Parent Leadership Council members to attend activities where appropriate in order to evaluate the program.
4. Submit a final report of the funded event/program including number of attendees, photos of activities, and a brief summary of funded activity. Photos and summary may be posted to the UC San Diego Parent and Family Giving website or used in impact stories for our donors.
All funds must be spent and a final report submitted by the end of the fiscal year.
All awards will comply with UC non-discrimination and other relevant policies.
