Support the Student Governance Fund on #MaryWashDay!
The Student Governance Fund provides additional financial support to student organizations that are otherwise restricted by state funding limitations, providing a more accessible and flexible funding source for their programs. This additional funding will help UMW's student-run clubs and organizations to go above and beyond in campus programming, student development, and responding to student needs. The Finance Committee, a student-led group, disperses dollars from the Student Governance Fund to approved organizations for student activities. Organizations that will benefit from your gift to the Student Governance Fund include:
Student Government Association (SGA)
The Student Government Association represents students to the university administration, faculty, and staff. SGA’s role is to address campus issues ranging from academic affairs to facilities and services.
