DOC Grants

Dollars for Organizations and Clubs

All DOC monies for 2022-2023  have been allocated. 

For the updated changes to our DOC guidelines click here.

The purpose of ASI Dollars for Organizations and Clubs (DOC) grant funding is to support Sac State students in their endeavors to increase the quality of campus life and learning. ASI DOC funding reimburses organizations and clubs for money spent on events, food, promotion, conferences and much more. 

Funded events or activities must be open to ALL Sacramento State students. Funding decisions will not be based on a student organization’s point of view. An organization must not be denied funding simply because it advocates a particular notion. Items/events awarded through DOC cannot be resold or charge admission.

Who Is Eligible?

Student organizations and clubs at Sacramento State are eligible to apply for DOC funding. Must be in good standing with Student Organizations and Leadership (SO&L). Must have a current and up-to-date, ASI Club Agreement Form (CAF) with the current President, Treasurer or like-officer on file with ASI Accounting Services Office. You must resubmit a new CAF anytime changes occur in authorized signers, club name, etc.  

What Is DOC Funding Used For?

Here are a few examples of how clubs and organizations are using ASI dollars:

  • Club promotional items (such as T-shirts, banners, etc.)
  • Conferences
  • Equipment (tables, chairs and club banner)
