• Activities and Finance Committee

    The Student Activities Finance Committee (SAFC) is a student-run panel that allocates $20,000 a year to university-recognized student organizations. The goal of the committee is to assist student groups in offering enriching events to the New School community.

    The SAFC is an excellent resource for student organizations looking to expand their programming beyond their $300 base budget. Typically, the SAFC funds events in the $50-$2,000 range. For very large events, student organizations should contact the University Student Senate at

    Successfully funded groups have a well-thought-out promotional plan for their event and target students in multiple programs at The New School. To learn more about SAFC guidelines and how to join, please see the sidebar on this page.
