Ram$ for Change Fundraiser
Ram$ for Change is a community engagement fundraiser built for Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) and community agencies to mutually support one another. It offers RSOs the opportunity to raise money and/or fulfill service hours. It supports local non-profits who demonstrate community need and are requesting volunteers to complete certain upcoming service projects. Service projects are for 2-4 hours and RSOs receive $20/CSU Ram who volunteers for the duration of the service project. An RSO must have a Student Organization Financial Account (SOFA) to participate, since fundraising money is deposited there. This program is ideal for RSOs wanting quick fundraising money, but are also looking for a bonding opportunity and the chance to make a difference in the local community. For the 2021 – 2022 academic year, Ram$ for Change will occur once a month on designated weekends in October, November, February, March, and April. There will also be “Flash Fundraisers” that will pop up with little notice when a non-profit desperately is requesting volunteers. If an RSO is able and interested in participating in a “Flash Fundraiser” and has the availability for the service project and the correct number of volunteers needed, then the first RSO to check all boxes will be granted the opportunity, and will receive $25/CSU Ram who volunteers. Ram$ for Change service projects will be available to RSOs on a first-come, first-serve basis, when dates/times/opportunities are released to the public. For designated weekends, RSOs will have 3-4 weeks of advanced notice. For “Flash Fundraisers,” RSOs will be notified within a week of the service project. Fundraising money is not guaranteed, since this fundraiser aims to support community need when it arises. However, when an RSO is matched with a community agency, submits all volunteer forms, and shows up and completes the assigned volunteering opportunity, then fundraising money is guaranteed and will be deposited into the RSO’s SOFA within two weeks of the service project. Finally, please note this fundraiser is only available while funds last.
Ram$ for Change is still undergoing some revisions, check back for more updates soon! Also, if you wish to notified about this fundraiser when it goes live, please contact SLiCE’s Community Support Team at email@example.com.
Community Agency Registration for Ram$ for Change
While Ram$ for Change offers registered student organizations fundraising money and/or service hours; for community agencies (non-profit and governmental-based organizations), it offers a creative pathway to get CSU students to volunteer their time for your immediate needs.
The Community Support Team will notify community agencies when we are ready to take in service project requests for the 2021-2022 academic year. We will have designated service weekends in October, November, February, March, and April – specific dates still to be determined.
