ONE-TIME FUNDING REQUESTS
Funding requests are brought back to the Board of Directors (located on the Waterloo campus) and decided on during Board meetings. Please allow a minimum of four weeks for a review process.
Project: Any one-time project or event, led by one or more LSPIRG members.
Research Project: Any one-time project whose primary focus is research, led by one or more LSPIRG members.
Community Partnership: Any one-time project, research project, or event, led by a community organization outside of Wilfrid Laurier University.
Research & Action Group Project: A funding request from and for the benefit of an already established LSPIRG Research and Group outside of the Group's currently existing budget.
Any requests for support of voluntourism activities shall be rejected as they neither reflect LSPIRG’s values nor fit with its mission.
Voluntourism refers to the combination of tourism with volunteering, particularly when the volunteer project has been tailored primarily to the desires of the volunteer, rather than to the needs of the host community.
