DSBA Funding Request Instructions

 

Event Funding Request Form

  • Please submit your Event Funding Request to DSBA.Treasurer@lls.edu at least one week to your event.
    • Requests submitted less than one week prior to your event are subject to denial.
  • Include the following in your email subject line: "Event Funding Request - Organization - Event Date"
  • Be Specific and thorough in your requests for funding from the DSBA. The more accurate and detailed the request, the more likely it will be approved.
  • The amount requested for your event should reflect an informed estimate of your expected attendance and itemization of all related expenses.
  • No long-term items that can be reused by the club will be reimbursed by DSBA. Those items must come from club funds.
  • If your request for food is over $250, the DSBA board must vote on its approval. Your funding request should be submitted at the latest, Friday prior to a DSBA meeting. A member of your board must then attend one of our bi-weekly meetings and explain the reasons why your event should be funding by DSBA and how it accords with DSBA's contribution.
    • The Association exists to foster professional character and skill; further legal scholarship; facilitate communication among the faculty, administration, alumni/ae, and students; advance the professional understanding, integrity, and reputation of Loyola Law School; and to promote justice by involvement in surrounding community.
  • Food-related expenses below $250 will be approved or denied at the discretion of DSBA's treasurers.
  • All request outside of food must be more detailed and will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the DSBA board. Considerations include the nature of the event, related expenses, and whether the event is in accordance with the DSBA Constitution.
  • All student organization events, both on and off-campus may be subject to federal, state, local, or university policies issued pursuant to public health guidelines.

Reimbursements

  • Please use the DSBA reimbursement request form which can be found at: mylls → current students → reimbursement form
  • All reimbursement requests must be submitted using the Reimbursement Form within 30 days of the date on the receipt and the receipt must have an itemized breakdown of expenses.
  • Review DSBA Reimbursement Instructions for guidance when completing the online form.
  • For reimbursements to be approved, you must have a sign-in sheet. You will include your sign-in sheet with your receipts when completing the online reimbursement form. We have provided your sign-in sheet for you, but you are welcome to use your own as long as it conforms to these requirements.
  • The amount of your reimbursement will be based on your actual expenses and attendance. If your initial event funding request was higher than your actual expenditure , we will rely on your receipts and attendance not on your funding request, when processing your reimbursement.
  • If your event significantly falls below expectations for reimbursement, (e.g. the amount spent on your event was not proportional to attendance) DSBA may allocate less money towards your future events.
