Finances

McMaster Students Union is a not-for profit organization
◦
Therefore so are clubs

The MSU is not charitable, and neither are its clubs
◦
Charitable receipts are not available

We must be Transparent and Accountable
◦
Clubs may be subject to audits by the MSU

All transactions must be accounted for with receipt

All money raised by the club must go to its programming or directed to a charity

It’s important to manage all your bills and make timely payments

Payments to establishments and companies are made through the club bank account.

Clubs are responsible for all of their own finances. Any debt becomes the executive’s.
◦
Therefore it is in your best interest to be financially responsible
The MSU assumes no responsibility for financial debts incurred by a Club.
MSU Funding
The MSU has funds directed to the support of club
activities. Unfortunately, this funding is not unlimited.
Therefore, this funding must be secondary to funds
raised from membership fees, ticket sales,
sponsorships, etc.



New and probationary clubs: maximum $100
All other clubs are considered on an individual basis
Clubs must submit budget requests for the 20112012 academic year by ***September 28th ***.

**Submitting a false budget to be allocated more funds will result in loss of all funding
