The Solidarity Fund
The Solidarity Fund is a new fund created in the Summer of 2020 and administered in partnership with the Division of Student Affairs, for all student organizations. The fund initially provided resources for summer programming but has now been expanded through the academic year.
To advance efforts related to equity, inclusion, and justice, the Office of Student Engagement in collaboration with Student Affairs have allocated funding to support innovative programs that combat anti-Black racism and contribute to a sense of belonging, equity, and inclusion for students. Funding is available for registered student organizations that seek to educate, provide community healing, and build awareness.
Requests will be reviewed by staff in the Inclusion, Community, and Integrative Learning (ICIL) unit of Student Affairs, alongside ASSU/SSE and The Stanford Fund. Funds will be disbursed through ASSU/GrantEd and all financial policies must be observed.
- The event or program must connect to the central mission and vision of the Solidarity Fund (see above)
- If funding includes a request for food, food must be central to the idea of the event. Ex: Learn how to cook with Chef Carla Hall.
- Note: Funds may not be used for donations or individuals.
It has been a phenomenal year of programming! The Solidarity Fund is now accepting applications for the 2023-24 academic year. Applications will be reviewed early in the 2023 Autumn Quarter. We encourage you to apply early!
