Student Handbook

Solicitation and Fundraising

Revised July 31, 2019

No individual student or student organization, whether affiliated with Arcadia University or not, may sponsor activities on campus that have the express purpose of making converts of, or soliciting members of Arcadia University’s community. Arcadia University reserves the right to restrict or prohibit the on-campus activities of any individual or organization whose purposes are contrary to Arcadia University’s values and mission.

  • Individuals and organizations not affiliated with the University are not permitted to solicit the community in order to raise funds for an individual, organization, or cause.
  • As an individual student, you are not permitted to solicit the Arcadia community to benefit an individual, organization, or cause.
  • A student organization to which you belong may sponsor activities for the benefit of an outside organization or cause as long as the organization obtains permission from the Office of Engagement and New Student Programs.
  • To conduct a fundraiser, student organizations must submit the Fundraising Authorization Form at least two weeks prior to any anticipated fundraiser. Requests are reviewed and approved by the Office of Engagement and New Student Programs. Failure to complete the form two weeks in advance may result in the fundraiser not being approved. Fundraising is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Fundraising Authorization Form details specifics about the fundraiser, including anticipated date(s) and time(s), permissible saleable items, and any approved images and designs. After approval is given, any changes must be submitted via a new Fundraising Authorization Form. Questions should be directed to your ENSP liaison or e-mailed to
