Some Club Rules Regarding Fundraising for Team Trips etc.
All fundraising events whether inside or outside the town must be approved by the committee first.
You must submit an itemised budget to the committee in advance, this will become the target of the fundraising event.
Any monies raised must be handed over to the club treasurer who will then issue a club cheque for the targeted amount, if the target was reached.
If the target wasn’t reached, all monies raised must be handed over to the club treasurer who will then issue a club cheque for the exact amount raised.
Any monies raised over the target will stay in the club funds.
Some Fundraising Questions, Answers and Examples:
Can a team organise it’s own fundraising to bring a team away?
Yes, but only with the approval of the Rush Athletic Football Club Committee.
Can a team organise it’s own fundraising to buy jerseys?
No, this must be sponsored.
What do I need to apply to the committee for approval?
You need to fully cost out the trip in advance, and itemise it, this will give you the target you need to fundraise for.
Contact a committee member to get on the next agenda.
If approval is granted by the committee, it will only be granted for this amount, and you must give all money raised to the treasurer of the club.
A cheque will then be issued back to you for the targeted amount, if it was reached.
If you didn’t reach the target, a cheque will be issued back to you for the exact amount you raised.
Any amount raised over this target will stay in the club.
If your target is €3000, and you raise €3500, you hand the €3500 to the club treasurer, you will then be issued with a cheque for €3000, the targeted amount, and the remaining €500 stays in the club account.
If on the other hand, your target is €3000, and you raise €2800, you hand the €2800 to the club treasurer, you will then be issued with a cheque for €2800, the targeted amount only.
Some Club Rules regarding Discipline
What if a player gets sent off?
NDSL rules state that there is an automatic one match ban, which should be the game after the sending off. The player and a club representative will then be summoned to the NDSL for a disciplinary hearing, a fine will be the likely outcome.
