Student Organizations Donating To Non-Profit Organizations

Student organizations may raise funds to donate to non-profit organizations.  However, it is encouraged that student leaders exercise caution and learn as much as they possibly can before committing to a certain charity.  Please note that Student Services Fee Funding is restricted and many not be used to donate to charity.

The Process To Donate To Desired Organization

  1. The student org completes the Charitable Contribution Form (Word | PDF – Fillable | Webpage );  ​
  2. The coach signs form, then the org emails it to Mindy Ireland (mindy.ireland@vanderbilt.edu) for the remaining signatures;  ​
  3. Once Mindy collects the signatures, she sends them back to the designated student;​
  4. They submit it to StuOrgPurchases@vanderbilt.edu for processing;​
  5. The charitable organization should be contacted by the student to let them know they may be asked to create a supplier account if one doesn’t already exist.  This step can be completed at any time during the process.​
