Finance Board

Finance Board interacts with every board throughout SGA and with many Butler organizations. This is through its financial responsibility obligations that ensure that SGA allocates money fairly and justly throughout the organization. Finance Board also distributes funds to Butler organizations through grants.

If you have any questions, please contact Vice President of Finance, Emily Fleming, or email sga@butler.edu.

How do I apply for a grant?

How does the grant process work?

Finance Board offers three different types of grants through its application process with each grant having different requirements. Any organization can apply for a general grant. This grant can be used to help an organization with an event, activity, or service for the student body. A DEIB grant means that the grant is approved by the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Board as an event that promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus. A service and philanthropy grant is approved by the Director of Service and Philanthropy and is designed for events that provide services to the student body and community. Once a grant is approved the organization must fill out an accountability form to ensure that the funds allocated were used as intended.
