Term Budgets

All term budgets must be completed and submitted through OrgSync.

About Term Budgets

  • Term budgets are typically due the second Friday of each term at noon, unless there is a holiday. No late proposals can be accepted. 
  • Term budgets are only for events that have already occurred. If you are planning a new event, please complete the regular funding proposal form through OrgSync.
  • You will receive an email to your organization’s account within three to five days that notifies you of the decision.
