Tax I.D. Number:

A Tax ID Number or EIN (Employer-ID number), is like a social security number for your organization. Student Organizations are often in situations that require a Federal Tax ID Number (opening an organizational bank account, conducting fundraisers off-campus, working concessions at an athletic event). No student organization is permitted to use the University's tax identification number. Its purpose is so the IRS will not make you personally responsible for taxes on revenue that you have earned.

IRS

To get a Tax ID number, you may contact the IRS and request a Form SS-4 (Application for Employer Identification Number) or visit their website in order to request an EIN. This form can be accessed online: Form SS-4 (PDF file) 

The local San Diego IRS office can be contacted at (619) 615-9555.

PLAN AHEAD!!! Processing may take 2-4 weeks

Sources of Funding

Associated Students Finance Board

The Finance Board acts on all requests for Associated Students’ funding, including those made by the AS boards and college councils. In addition, the Finance Board directly allocates money for student organizations under the jurisdiction of each of the 7 college councils, funding for AS programs and boards, as well as funding for student organizations’ activities for purposes of recruiting and retaining students who are underrepresented in the SDSU population because of educational and social disadvantage. For further details, contact the AS Vice President of Finance.

In order to request funding read and follow instructions for Campus Program Funding

SRRB

Another co-sponsorship opportunity available to officially recognized student organizations is through the Student Recruitment and Retention Board or “SRRB.” You can request co-sponsorship through SRRB for anything that is recruitment or retention oriented, such as a high school conference, which is something that a good number of organizations do on a yearly basis. For more information please contact Intercultural Relations/Cross Cultural Center, located in Aztec Center.

Academic Colleges/Departments

Some colleges or departments have funding that can be allocated to student organizations. If your group is affiliated with a specific department or college, contact the College Council President to inquire about possible funding.

Student Success Fee  

In the Spring of 2014, a new mandatory Student Success Fee (SSF) was approved, effective Fall 2014. A portion of the fee (10%) is dedicated to enhancing student success through expanded Academic Related Programs (ARPs). The remaining portion of the fee (90%) is used to increase the number of tenure-track faculty lines and course sections. 

Academic Related Programs (ARPs) are defined as those activities and programs which extend the formal learning experience in a course or academic program. They provde an opporunity for students to become engaged and involved in their education outside of their academic courses to enrich their overall educational experience. Examples of ARPs include but are not limited to student colloquia, lecture series, seminars, student projects, student performances, and participation at professional conferences.
