Funding is available to help make events more accessible to students with disabilities.

The Simon Fraser Student Society Accessibility Fund began in 2005. Students with disabilities and any event organizer can use this fund to increase accessibility and remove barriers to participation in Student Society activities for students with disabilities.

“SFSS activities” mean any meetings and events organized by Departmental Student Unions, SFSS Clubs, or the SFSS.

Contact the SFSS for more information.

  • Grant requests must be submitted via the Club Portal under ‘Club Management Tools & Forms.’
  • Only club executives with fund/facilities roles can apply for a grant online through the club portal.
  • For requests under grants under $1,000.00, approved by Member Services Coordinators, must be submitted 10 CALENDAR DAYS (excluding submission and event day) in advance.
  • For requests of $1,000.00 and over, approved by the Member Services Coordinators and the CEO, they must be submitted 20 CALENDAR DAYS (excluding submission and event day) in advance.
  • Proposals can be submitted at any time during the semester or a semester ahead to allow for advanced planning.
  • A grant may only be awarded in part. It helps to have other revenue sources to offset event costs, such as sponsorship, entrance fees, or charging for food/beverages, etc.
  • Any unused money will revert back to the grant pool to help support other club initiatives. Grants via proposal cannot be donated to off campus organizations, though they can be used to cover the material cost of holding a fundraiser.

When your club’s grand has been approved, please review the granted amounts carefully!

  • Receipts MUST fully match the granted budget line category ( eg. be for the cost of Decorations, Snacks/Drinks, Honoraria, etc.)
  • Receipts MUST be a detailed list of items (not simply your Debit / Credit print out)
  • Invoices and e-receipts MUST indicate payment was made
  • Invoices in other than English MUST identify the item purchased and country currency.
