Funding for an Event

Do you have an idea for an event or campus initiative but are short on funding? Pitzer College offers a variety of ways to help you bring your idea to life.

  • Pitzer College Events Board: The Pitzer College Events Board is tasked by the Student Senate to approve, coordinate, and fund student events on the Pitzer College campus, and help facilitate student events across the consortium. It is chaired by a designated member of the Student Senate. The purpose of the Events Board is to register events, provide advice, assistance, funding, resources, and support to students and organizations that are putting on campus events— this includes, but is not limited to: events, parties, speakers, and artists. All Event Registrants seeking funding for an event must submit a “Pitzer Events Board Registration and Funding Request Form” at least 3 weeks before their proposed event date.
  • Budget Committee: In addition to Student Senate’s yearly budget, students and organizations may request funding from Budget Committee throughout the academic year. Visit the Student Senate website for more information on Budget Committee:
  • Campus Life Committee: The mission of Campus Life Committee is to enhance the intellectual, cultural, and social life of the College, to promote and support close faculty-student relationships, and to encourage the involvement of alumni in the campus community. CLC fulfills its mission primarily by allocating various funds for special events, activities, programs, and projects that will enhance campus life. All members of the Pitzer community are invited to submit funding proposals (link to submit proposals is under “Funding & Event Guidelines”). CLC also oversees issues of space development, allocation, and utilization in residential areas, and supports an orientation program for new students. Visit the Campus Life Committee Website for more information:

If the above funding sources are not what you are looking for, you can also consider looking at different areas around the college for potential partnerships. You can consider partnering with a department, club/organization, institute, etc. that may have an interest in working with you.
