Special Appropriations Fund
This fund contains the available monies for allocation to Registered Student Organizations (RSO) from the ASUW. The ASUW Bylaws currently require at least $30,000 of funding to be available each year. For 2006-07, the fund stands at $45,000.
During the budgeting process of the 2005-06 academic year, a request had been made to the Services and Activities Fee Committee (SAFC) to increase the fund to $60,000 for the 2006-07 academic year, but the request was denied. The SAFC will be undertaking a review of all direct-RSO funding during 2006-07. Consequently, the committee froze all increases to direct-RSO funding pools contained within the ASUW, Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS), Ethnic Cultural Center (ECC), and Student Activities and Union Facilities (SAUF).
