Funding

How the WAC can support YOUR programming:

Endorsement: We can offer endorsement (using our logo and name) as well as support with advertisement (via social media) and potentially providing volunteers for the event.

Co-sponsorship: When the WAC pays for a part of an event, as outlined in the request form. There is a 300$ limit on the amount that the WAC can provide. Please email me at: asuwomn@uw.edu

Collaboration: When multiple entities come together to plan around an event or project. This avenue requires a more involved process of planning and working together on the event, rather than the WAC simply providing endorsement or funds.

Joint Commission Committee Funding: The Women’s Action Commission can sponsor events and fund different on campus organizations with the collaboration of one other Diversity Commission!
