Allocations Board

The Spring 2018 Funding Marathon decisions are available here.

The Secured Club Reports for Fall 2017 are available here

The Allocations Board is comprised of 11 voting members: a chairperson, the Student Union Treasurer, a Senate Representative, two racial minority members, and six other members. It is advised by Student Activities. It holds meetings at least once per week during the semester.

As outlined in Article V of the Student Union Constitution, A-Board’s role is to establish the budgets from the Student Activities Fund (SAF) for Chartered and Secured Clubs. SAF funding is taken as 1% of the Brandeis University tuition and for the 2017-2018 academic year is approximately $1.7 million.

Only secured and chartered organizations are eligible to request and receive funds from A-Board. The Student Union Senate recognizes and charters all clubs.

A-Board strives to ensure that all funding is distributed equitably and will only fund requests that are relevant to a club's constitution, within the budgetary means of the SAF, and meet the requirements of A-Board policy.
