Student Life & Engagement Sponsorship and Donations Application

Student Life & Engagement (SLE) is pleased to consider sponsorship or donation requests that align with our values and mission. Sponsorships support an event, activity, person, or organization financially in return for a specified benefit. Donations are a gift given for charitable purposes or to benefit a cause with no return benefit expected. 

APPROVAL

Due to limited resources and the large number of requests we receive annually, our SLE Donation Review Team will review all requests for donations. Eligible organizations may only receive one donation for the same event per calendar year. The team authorizes the donation on behalf of all RHS and its encompassing departments. The donation is non-transferable and approved for only the event named in the request.  

PRIORITY REQUESTS

While SLE cannot honor all requests, we try financially to assist our community through organizational support to provide students and the MSU community with growth opportunities. Priority is given to MSU Registered Student Organizations (RSO’s), events on campus over off-campus events, and a higher priority is given for events held in SLE facilities over other facilities.

HOW TO MAKE A REQUEST

All requests should comply with the guidelines above. However, even if you/the group meets all the guidelines, there is no guarantee that our team will approve the request. 

Sponsorship/donation requests must be submitted through our online system. We recommend the donation form be submitted at least six (6) weeks in advance of the event. We will notify applicants of the status of the request via the email provided on the form.
