University of Wisconsin-Parkside
Campus Sales, Solicitation and Fund Raising
All solicitation, distribution and/or fund-raising activities that are held at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside must be sponsored and coordinated by a recognized student organization or university department and approved by the University Activities Office. Fund raising activities that involve direct solicitation of individuals and/or businesses must also be approved by the University Advancement and Alumni Relations. Fund raising through the sale of merchandise does not need the approval of University Advancement and Alumni Relations.
Space and/or tables for approved sales and solicitation must be reserved through University Activities. The sponsoring organization must be identified in some visible way at the table at which the sales and solicitation occurs. If an off-campus vendor is utilized, the financial relationship to the sponsoring organization also must be clearly identified. For example, if the sponsoring organization receives a percentage of sales, this financial agreement must be displayed publicly in the sales area. Individuals staffing a sales or promotion table or area, shall not aggressively solicit, or otherwise pressure a person to buy goods or services.
Student organizations who sponsor sales and solicitations for the purposes of fund-raising, cannot deposit proceeds into a private account in the event that set-up and promotion costs are covered by segregated student fees.
For profit entities will be allowed on campus a maximum of four days each academic year.
Questions regarding this policy may be directed to the Dean of Students.
