ASB Clubs Fundraising

  1. Complete an ASB Activity Approval and Reconciliation Form. This is the form needs to be completed and submitted to ASB in order to start any type of fundraising. You only need to fill out box A, then submit the form to Ms. Lehni’s room at least 3 WEEKS in advance – ASB will then approve or deny it. Also, keep in mind that if you choose to fundraise by selling food, there is strict guidelines you have to follow which can be found on the back of the form.
  2. A Request to Spend Form is a second form which you also need to use in order to spend any of your club’s money from fundraising. You just have to write down everything you want and the costs, then submit it to Ms. Lehni’s room 3 WEEKS in advance!
  3. A Reimbursement Form is the third form which you can use if you end up spending your own money on your club and want to get the money back from your fundraised funds. If you are under 18, the funds will have to be paid back to either your parent or guardian. Also, be sure to specify when being reimbursed that you want the money to come from your club’s account and not ASB funding, because if you don’t specify, we will assume it’s from us and most likely not approve it. 

All forms are available in the office or from Ms. Lehni.
